Big Tree Is Sick

Nathalie Slosse and Rocio Del Moral

This storybook describes the anger and emotions that many children feel when a close relative or friend is diagnosed with a long-term illness, such as cancer. The story of Big Tree shows how things are often out of your control and sets out effective strategies for dealing with these emotions. This story features loveable characters and vivid illustrations, as well as activities for children aged 5+ to complete with their parents or professionals in times of illness and loss.

Books can be ordered using the myRedkite online portal.
