When Someone is Very Sick
Jim Boulden


Reading Level: Elementary School Age

Elfo leads us through this playful yet realistic story of feelings children may experience when confronted with a serious illness in a family member. Elfo tells us about issues related to sickness: how the sick person may look, talk, and act differently and how he or she may now need medicines, tubes and machines. Children often have unexpressed worries, and Elfo encourages the readers to express their feelings and write and talk about their experiences. Included with this book are memory pages and graphics to make get-well cards.
