Summary "Teaching tough and scary topics to children, especially to the very young, is not easy. Dealing with Cancer is a sad reality that many families have to face and explaining it to little children can be very difficult, and hard to do without creating a Monster of Fear. Cancer is a C Word written by Sunita Pal and illustrated by Cody Andreasen, will help families and schools to introduce the concept of Cancer to little ones, specifically to early primary-aged children, in a very simple way that is easy for them to understand. At the same time, the book also focuses on the positive aspects by demonstrating that there are other C words linked to Cancer that have an uplifting effect, such as Caring, Community, Cuddling, and Companionship. With 32 beautifully illustrated full-colour pages and some fun images that will appeal to children, Cancer is a C Word is an informative picture book for children that answers some tough questions, while conveying an overall comforting and positive message. Cancer is a fairly new, but necessary topic in children's literature, and Cancer is a C Word is an honest and simple explanation of how cancer might affect a child's loved ones."-- Provided by publisher.
