About the Book-You Are the Best Medicine by Julie Aigner Clark
When someone you love has cancer, how can you make them smile? A cuddle, a story, a kiss—and thoughts of you. Because you are the best medicine.
Watching someone you love go through cancer treatment is scary—especially for a child. In this courageous and sensitive book, cancer survivor Julie Clark creates sweet and poignant memories that remind us how children can nurture people they care about at a time when optimism and love are the most needed.
What this book teaches-Cancer, Healing, Strength
My review of the book:
From a mothers perspective with cancer to her daughter. A heavy topic done in as a light story. A message about courage. The message is that the children are the medicine, because they bring hope and playfulness, to the mother when she is going through a hard time.
