“My Abuela is Sick”

Every mealtime is the right occasion to bond with family members and people we love. As we nourish our bodies, we cherish the relationships.

“My Abuela is Sick” by rising author Jennifer Bisignano deals with the difficult subject of cancer and the difficult theme of death. Most people think these two topics should never appear in children’s literature, but Bisignano took liberty of addressing them in her ground-breaking book. While it is a story of an eight-year old girl whose grandmother is cancer-stricken, it is also a moving tale of love.
 
The main character struggles to come into terms with her grandmother’s sickness. Her grandmother refused to talk about her pain, which she bore with love for her doting grand-daughter. By doing so, she bravely demonstrated that cancer – or impending death – cannot diminish her love.
 
One cannot help but feel pity towards the young girl, especially when she opened up about her ordeal during an afterschool session. But let our pity give way to admiration for her, who confronted the painful reality of losing someone she dearly loved. 
 
The topics of cancer and death in “My Abuela is Sick” is sure to scandalize young readers at first. Later, they will learn to emotionally and emphatically connect with the brave young girl – and all other children their age who has already suffered the loss of loved ones.
