Description

Los niños que afrontan el cáncer—sea su propio, un miembro de la familia, un amigo, o hasta un animal doméstico—encontrarán en este libro ayuda para el entendimiento de esta enfermedad. Un muchacho joven descubre una protuberancia en su perro, quien luego es diagnosticado con esas palabras temidas: “Es cáncer”. El muchacho cariñosamente se encarga del cuidado de su perro que será sometido a los mismos tipos de tratamientos y que tendrá muchas de las mismas reacciones que un humano tendría en circunstancias similares (transferencia). La escritora médica y autora premiada de libros de niños, Sherry North, teje artísticamente este serio tema con una historia que hasta los chiquitos pueden comprender.
