Mooshu Worries

Imagine being Jackie, a small child whose mother has been diagnosed with cancer. It’s very worrying to see a parent in pain, and there are lots of changes in a child’s routines. This picture book helps ease worry when a parent has a serious or chronic illness. Seeing the situation as family dog Mooshu views it helps make the child’s coping a bit easier. After worrying about long waits to take walks, Mooshu enhances his wait time with hugs. This book is about the importance of being in the moment, without promises about the future.
