“My Abuela is Sick”

How to explain to kids about cancer and the pain of death? Get them to read this book but don’t forget to guide them.

More and more children now witness the horrors of death. For them, nothing is more painful than witnessing the death of beloved family members. In the Latino children’s book “My Abuela is Sick,” the main character sees her world turn upside down when she learns her grandmother suffers from cancer.
 
Most children’s book authors would steer clear of the subject of cancer or death, in general, when writing literature for kids. Not for rising author Jennifer Bisignano, who saw it as impetus for writing this heart-touching story. Bisignano looks for a better way to (help adults) explain cancer – and the painful reality of losing someone to the dreaded disease – to children. By writing “My Abuela is Sick,” she hopes to achieve this objective.
 
A finalist at the International Latino Book Awards, the revolutionary yet inspiring “My Abuela is Sick” is a league of its own at the upcoming 2017 Bologna Children’s Book Fair, which will be held on April 3-6, 2017.
