Mama's Knight - A Cancer Story of Love

Once upon a time . . . It’s how all heroes begin their story, and you’re a hero, too! Your mama has cancer, and it’s a scary journey, but you can help your mama just by being you—special, wonderful, YOU. Your mama loves you just the way you are. You are your mama’s knight.

Mama’s Knight: A Cancer Story of Love is an emotional toolbox that can help kids and parents communicate about what it means for Mama to have cancer. The book is filled with tools and activities designed to make coping with illness easier on both parent and child, and can be personalized for each child.

My Take:
Do you know someone with young children who is suffering from cancer? Maybe even, you yourself? This book is an amazing way to bond with your young child while explaining a bit about cancer and its effects on your lives. It was much more than I expected, and very interactive. There is a place to attach a photo of your child and add their name, along with their favorite things. The illustrations are colorful and attractive. You can also include your treatment plan and it even has a pattern to make your own super hero cape (for you and your child)! 

This book allows the child to share his feelings. It also gives you the opportunity to share your treatment choices and the side effects the cancer can cause, in a way that they can relate to and understand. There are ideas for making up stories together, recipes for "gag-proof" food and an activity center for those blah days when you don't feel like doing much. There are coupons, and places for pictures as well as a journal for Adventures with Mama. 

I was impressed with this book. And although I am not struggling with cancer myself, I think this book would be an amazing asset for a mom who is.  

I received a free copy of this book from iReadBookTours to review. A positive review was not required and all opinions are my own.
