Throughout her professional life, Moonbeam Children's Gold Medal Book Award recipient, Ellen McVicker has always worked in some capacity with children, parents, educators, and people who were dedicated to the mental health profession. As a master teacher in the field of special education for twenty years, and a kindergarten teacher for four; as well as, the Director of Education for both Charter Hospital of Denver and the Colorado Children's Museum, and Marketing Director for the Centre for Behavioral Health at Denver's Porter Memorial Hospital, Ellen would always find ways to fulfill her true life's passion, lending a voice to any child or parent who did not have the words to say what was needed on their own. To continue this passion, the book has now been translated into Spanish. Today, Ellen McVicker lives in Aurora, Colorado with her husband, Tracey, and two of their three boys, Jordan and Chad.Review:
I believe you have captured the inner most feelings of young children. The clarity of reassurance of the child's safety and his/her remaining an integral part of the nuclear family (under the duress of illness) and being able to contribute to the parent's well being resonates in the prose. Simplicity of explanation is necessary in answering difficult questions that children pose to adults, and you have been successful in doing this with your book. The illustrations are soft, discernible, rich in color and most probably, aligned with children's visualizations of the world in which they live. I will be using it in my practice as a resource and reference. Unfortunately, I am faced with the issue of a parent's cancer and/or relative's cancer much too frequently in my patient roster. Congratulations to you and your cousin. You have filled a niche in children's literature that will be welcomed by parents, teachers and therapists. --Shirley MacPherson, Ph.D. Clinical Therapist/Psychologist Los Angeles, CA
