How do you explain cancer to a young child? It’s a topic no one likes to broach, but left unaddressed children can become confused, sad, scared, anxious and frustrated. This short children’s picture book provides a simple yet realistic portrayal about:
- What cancer can do and can’t do
- How different doctors look for cancer
- What doctors do if they find cancer
- How children may feel when someone they love has cancer
- What children can do to make a difference
- How families still have fun despite the change in lifestyle
The wording is simple, the illustrations are playful and the photos are multicultural, M.C. Plays Hide & Seek makes cancer understandable to all children, even those not directly affected by a cancer diagnosis in the family. It is an easy book for children to read themselves at home or school. The overall message is one of empowerment for knowledge, compassion and hope.
Including children in the ‘cancer talk,’ can go a long way to minimize fear, open lines of communication, develop coping skills and foster emotional health. Don’t ‘hide’ a cancer diagnosis from children, ‘seek’ out ways to include and inform them with ‘M.C. Plays Hide & Seek!’
