‘Mr. C the Globetrotter’

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 takes readers around the world to visit children who care about a person living with cancer. The simple and realistic messages include:

  • How cancer changes family dynamics
  • How a person with cancer can act differently
  • How children may feel when someone they love has cancer. 
  • What children can say and do to make a difference
  • How families can bond and communities come together

The wording is simple, the illustrations are playful and the photos are multicultural. Mr. C The Globetrotter 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 empowering coping skills and communication strategies.

The book includes a map of the world and the location of the 21 countries in which the children in the book reside.

Including children in the ‘cancer talk,’ can go a long way to minimize fear, open lines of communication and foster emotional health.

Don’t ‘hide’ a cancer diagnosis from children – ‘seek’ out the Talk4Hope Book Series!
