I purchased 3 books from amazon.com on the same subject, and this was my favorite -- and more importantly, her favorite. She actually asks to read "the books about mommy's cancer."
It is important to note that the book does give the idea throughout that the mother will be OK at the end of the chemo treatments and life will go back to normal. My prognosis is very good, so I was comfortable with this message, but if your prognosis is not as positive this book may not be for you.
The book follows a mom as she explains to her daughter that she has cancer. As the mom discusses some of the trials and tribulations she'll go through, she relates it back to many of the memories she has of her child: How she will be sad because she's sick, but she'll be happy since it's a sickness her daughter can't catch. How she will feel scared, but will remember all the times her daughter had a nightmare and came into her room to sleep with her. And how she will have to take medicine that makes her lose her hair, but will remember her daughter's sweet little baby head, round and bald.
As it prepares a child for the rough road ahead, it's a great resource to teach children about the importance of love and support. It truly is a wonderful reminder that love and kindness really are the best medicine.
It was incredibly helpful for him, also for both of us parents to read/bond with him. The book covers things like fatigue, baldness, etc but in a positive light - "when my hair is gone I will remember when you were a bald little baby." It's VERY sweet and hopeful, and set a tone of "we will get through this, no need to fear."
We also offered for him to take the book to school to read with his teacher. It gives others an "in" to listen for what he needs to be saying.
