That being said, it does not talk about surgery or staying in the hospital, which is something I think most breast cancer patients will have to deal with during the course of their treatment. It really focuses instead on chemotherapy side effects like hair loss and fatigue, and also depression/sadness. It would have been helpful if it had talked a little about surgery.
Also, the prognosis of the mom in the book is positive. It talks about when the cancer is gone and saying goodbye to the breast boo-boo. As a stage IV patient, my prognosis is poor and I struggle with reading the end because I know it probably won't apply to our situation. That said, my daughter is only 2.5, and I don't know that she would be ready to hear anything different at this point, and the ending is gentle and positive without being over-the-top-promising-Mommy-will-be-100%-better.
Overall an excellent book for the very young child. We've had it for two months now, and my daughter still asks to read it all the time.
I'll definitely recommend this book to friends and family if they need it.

Charming little book about breast cancer to help explain to small children. My 5 year old may have been a tad old for it, but she still really enjoyed it and does read it... Read morePublished 13 months ago by Victoria J.
Extremely quick read. It really helped me to talk about my treatments with my 3-year old, without freaking her out.Published 21 months ago by FL Simone
