Snippet: "He felt like he had a dark cloud over his head all the time."
Summary: A sick or injured child can disrupt the best of families. Parents are frequently so focused on the sick child that well siblings may feel abandoned. In spite of the love they feel for their sibling, a well child may be annoyed with all the attention their sick sibling receives. The well child may feel guilty about their anger or annoyance. Conflicting emotions can overwhelm the healthiest child. This book hopes to demonstrate to the healthy child that their feelings are normal, acceptable and guilt is not necessary. The book also hopes to alleviate any of the well child's feelings of alienation and loneliness by reassuring them of their parents love.
Review: I have read all of William G. Bentrim's books to date and they have never been a disappointment because they truly are great. I can say that What About Me? is really good. It teaches children that their parents do care for them even if sometimes their attention is drawn away to a sick child in the family.
Once again, the illustrations are really neat, I definitely think they're eye catching and young children will definitely like them.
William G. Bentrim has once again created a great story that young children will enjoy and it teaches them a lesson at the same time.
