MY MOMMY HAS CANCER is a caring, informative & beautifully written book by Carolyn Stearns Parkinson to help young children understand what cancer is. The exception, warm four color illustrations by Elaine Verstraete are original water paintings of REAL people. The combination of the story & the illustrations help adults & children talk about this difficult subject & what their unique needs & concerns are. This book meets a crucial need for young children & their families, as one parent said, "It helped us to say the words we could not find to say." The book is being used in hospitals, schools, libraries & homes. "Carolyn Stearns Parkinson's book MY MOMMY HAS CANCER provides an excellent & necessary addition to the children's literature explaining illness. The beauty & sensitivity of both Carolyn Parkinson's words & Elaine Verstraete's color illustrations create a gentle ambiance in which children, from their own perspective, can learn about cancer, its emotional impact & its treatment. This is a superb book for parents to read with their children," by Michael H. Henrichs, Ph.D., Founder & Director of Kids Adjusting Through Support, Inc, Clinical, Child & School Psychologist, Cl. Assoc. Professor of Psychiatry & Oncology. To order contact Solace Publishing Inc., P.O. Box 567, Folsom, CA 95763-0567, (916) 984-9015.
