MC Plays Hide and Seek
MC Plays Hide and Seek: An Empowering Story for Healthy Children Who Care About a Person Living with Cancer by Eva Grayzel is an excellent book for young children. I wish I had it handy six months ago when my husband and I had to discuss with our children his cancer diagnosis. It was not an easy thing to do to let them know that he is very sick and we had a hard time figuring out what to say. This book would have been great to have at that time. The illustrations are perfect to help younger readers understand about cancer. I thought it is great way to help them cope with the news of this illness. The author does a fabulous job to show them what a cancer cell is.
MC Plays Hide and Seek: An Empowering Story for Healthy Children Who Care About a Person Living with Cancer will be getting a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for young readers who have a loved one that has cancer. Especially, those that are between the ages of three and seven (and maybe even older). I hope Eva Grayzel will release another book like this one in the future. I thought this one would be a great addition to have in cancer centers.
I received MC Plays Hide and Seek: An Empowering Story for Healthy Children Who Care About a Person Living with Cancer from the publisher. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
