Description

Helping children with cancer cope with their illness, this illustrated book approaches their emotions from diagnosis through treatment in a way that they can easily understand and can help describe what they are feeling. In the story, a young girl uses color to express her full range of emotions as she undergoes cancer treatment. Some days she's sad, some days she's happy, and other days she's scared or angry. The girl comes to realize that these ups and downs are perfectly normal for her situation. The book assures children with cancer that they are not alone, and helps them understand that it's okay to let out their feelings.

  • (5/5)
    A young girl was diagnosed with cancer at a very early age. She goes through many emotions from day to day and has to live with the fear of this illness. She is able to describe her feelings through the colors of the rainbow, which I find to be very powerful. She feels purple when she is scared, blue when she is sad, yellow when happy, green when jealous of the other children, red when angry, and orange when sick. She ends each page with saying "It's okay to feel.." whichever color she is feeling. I really loved this story and the way that this illness was portrayed. Cancer can be very scary and this young girl is battling it day by day while seeing all of the colors of the rainbow.
