Having a physician diagnose your child with chronic illnesses such as diabetes or, God forbid, cancer can be devastating to you and your family. But how does your little one feel? They may feel angry, upset, fearful, and confused about what is going on inside their bodies, and they may even wonder what they did to deserve their sickness. Here is a wonderful list of books that range on various illnesses that can help your child learn to understand and cope with their disease.
