When Someone is Very SickSKU:434
Elfo leads us through this realistic story of the fears and feelings children may experience when confronted with the serious illness of a family member. He tells about issues related to sickness: how the sick person may look, talk and act differently and how they may now need medicines, tubes and machines. Since children often have concerns they don’t know how to express when a family member has a prolonged illness, Elfo demonstrates and validates feelings of sadness, fear, worry, loneliness and love. Issues addressed realistically include the hospital visit, medicines, fatigue and deteriorating physical appearance.
