Her Pink Hair


The simplicity of this book is what makes it so perfect for young children. The illustrations are depicted with clay models which bring awareness that this child has a problem without burdening a small child’s emotion.  The story depicted is of few words, but enlightening to the situation. 

Jill Dana, author of Her Pink Hair wishes to bring awareness to small children about cancer. In the book Jill portrays that some who have cancer get better and some do not.  She expresses in a way that leaves a child only taking from the situation what they are able to understand and handle.

The book does not state that a child has died, or that a child suffers. It simply displays the fact that this child lost her hair and this child had to rest and that this child was not able to go to school. I think this is a wonderful book for young children to have a first experience of a friend or sibling who is undergoing chemo therapy.

  6. Hi Susan, nice review. I also reviewed Jill's book. I think it's a great book to open discussions about sick children who leave school and don't come back. Thanks for all your great reviews and support. Blessings, Penny
