This is a loving story of a young boy who helps his mom through treatment with " alien blobs" for her cancer. On a good day, when mom is feeling less tired, they go together to Harriett's Hair for a wig day. The book is fun and warm with humor weaved into a delightful story of how a boy supports his mom through chemotherapy.
This is a great book with colorful pictures showing children the process from going to the hospital, to feeling tired and sick, to loosing hair, to wearing the Punk Wig, to finally getting better in the process.
This book is a must read for parents and children who are experiencing this same scenario, and a good read for children who just want to know a little something about loosing your hair.
Check it out.
