Who Will Tuck Me In?
A New Zealand picture book for younger children (4–8 years) who have a family member with a serious illness. Author Sue Garden-Bachop, a mother of three, wrote this colourful and engaging book after she was diagnosed with leukaemia. She wanted a book about her kind of situation to use with her own children, but not finding what she needed, she wrote a story herself. Illustrated in full colour throughout, it is informative without ever being heavy, and it particularly highlights some of the worries a child in this situation may have. With its gentle humour, this story will appeal to young children but will also be enjoyed by any older siblings listening in.
