Book Review - "Nowhere Hair"

"Nowhere Hair" written by Sue Glader and illustrated by Edith Buenen is specifically for children who have a family member dealing with having cancer. This would be a perfect book for a child who has a mother or grandmother who is losing her hair due to cancer treatments.
The girl's mother has been diagnosed with cancer and she loses her hair as a result of the treatments she undergoes. The girl is worried about her mom, wonders if the cancer is her fault and wonders where her hair has all gone. She is reassured that it is not her fault, and she sees her mom wearing all sorts of hats that help in numerous ways.
This is a wonderful resource for children! It is an upbeat book, but it addresses the concerns and feelings that children will experience in this type of situation. Losing hair can be scary for children and this is a great way for it to be explained to children.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for a honest review*
