Written by a pediatric oncologist and a behavioral scientist, this is a lovely book for families experiencing illness or death of a child. There's a link to their website with some great resources - be sure to use them hand in hand with this picture book, and read the note at the beginning. A nice gift for a family in need of some comfort.
