With warm, beautifully composed illustrations from Asa Gilland, Clare Helen Welsh’s sensitively handled picture book deals with the complicated emotions that surrounded a loved one’s diagnosis of cancer. A hugely valuable tool to help children understand serious illness and the ways it affects people, The Perfect Shelter tells a deeply affecting story with compassion and heart.
At first nobody knew. Then they told me my sister was sick.
But together we'll ride out the storms. And today is the perfect day to build a shelter, and be together.
A powerful and uplifting story, exploring the emotions we feel when someone we love has a serious illness.
