About the Book

“Ellen has an extraordinary ability to capture the messages for children about the process of this illness and its treatment. She does this important task using a voice that (respectfully) represents how children actually experience their world – having important serious matters interspersed with moments of curiosity and wonder as they naturally continue to grow, learn, and play.  I would whole-heartedly recommend this book to the families I see in my practice.”

— Izetta Smith, M.A., Cancer Counselor and author of A Tiny Boat at Sea: How to Help Children Who Have a Parent Diagnosed with Cancer
