How do you approach tough, sensitive topics with your children?  Do you ever wonder how they would handle illness or divorce?  How about the topic of “breast cancer”?  We met a young lady named Amber, who had the same questions, but decided to tackle those tough subjects by writing.

Her first published work titled “Rachel’s Auntie is Bald-Headed“is on Amazon. This is the first book of a series that is designed to gently familiarize children with issues that require healing for their minds and hearts. It is about a 9 year old girl who discovers that her favorite aunt is bald-headed, as a result of Cancer.

She struggles with the fears of teasing, thinking Cancer is contagious, and wondering how to fix it, all during Thanksgiving weekend.

Readers may identify with Rachael’s fears or gain sensitivity for others who may have this experience. The book has an open ending to encourage each reader to develop his/her own conclusion. At the end of the story are a vocabulary list, creative writing assignments, and opportunities to promote the support of a charity, community service, or other selfless activities relating to the story.
