Life as Leels’ Rating: 5 out of 5
Once upon a time . . . It’s how all heroes begin their story, and you’re a hero, too! Your mama has cancer, and it’s a scary journey, but you can help your mama just by being you—special, wonderful, YOU. Your mama loves you just the way you are. You are your mama’s knight.
Mama’s Knight: A Cancer Story of Love is an emotional toolbox that can help kids and parents communicate about what it means for Mama to have cancer. The book is filled with tools and activities designed to make coping with illness easier on both parent and child, and can be personalized for each child.
I thought this book was absolutely adorable and a great gift for a child and mother who are on the journey of cancer together.
The illustrations in the book are amazing. It is an easy read for children. I found it to be comforting in both the illustrations, words, and the phrases.
There are activities throughout the book, along with links to find more or get printables.
It is a customizable book with places to write things in and add pictures.
As a parent, I felt it is a book that will bring comfort to a child, but also serve as a memory keeper for a child. It reminds the child that mommy is sick, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t love the child and that while she may not like the smell of her favorite food or able to do activities; it doesn’t mean she doesn’t love the child.
It really is a cute book perfect for a mom and child who are on the journey of cancer together. Highly recommend.
