Sometimes it can be difficult to know how to talk with a child about the illness or death of a parent. I Remember Mommy s Smile offers parents and other caregivers an opportunity to open the door to dialogue. It also shows children that they are not alone or strange; others have gone through this type of sadness and loss, and they have ended up okay. As author Dina Wolfman Baker understands from her own experience, knowing you re not alone can mean a great deal. These are her memoirs...written from her child self to other children, with the sensitivity, honesty and directness that can only come from having been there.

At age 11, Dina lost her mother to cancer after a 2-1/2 year illness. While she still feels the sadness of her mother s death, she also recognizes all she gained from her brief time with her mother in her life. It is Dina s mission to make the most of what her mother gave her. Dina drew from her own experience to write this book with the hope of helping other children who are coping with similar situations. Dina runs Baker s Dozen Press® and has also written and published Creative License: Summer Sermons on Torah and Living in Community. She and her husband Brad are empty-nesters living in suburban Philadelphia with their cat, Leo.Review:
This book is a valuable addition for the therapist, guidance counselor, school psychologist, and anyone working or living with grieving children. In simple, moving language, Dina Wolfman Baker provides a comforting yet honest view of a young child experiencing the death of a parent from illness. --Nini Engel, Ed.M., School Psychologist
Forty years ago people felt a young child could not understand death and talking about it would only traumatize them. Now we know talking is actually healing. I hope your story will be helpful to children and especially parents so they will be more comfortable talking to their children about a very difficult subject. The illustrations are marvelous. --M. B., Retired Nurse
I appreciate the book's clarity, sensitivity, and how you worked at editing a long and complex story. --J. W., retired middle school teacher and administrator
