Daniel and His Starry Night Blanket is the tale of a young boy whose older sister gets cancer and, from his perspective, far too much of their parents' attention. Filled with evocative watercolor illustrations, the book traces the impact on Daniel of his sister's illness and treatment in the context of his ongoing emotional and cognitive development. The author's unique background as professional artist, cancer survivor, and retired clinical child psychologist enriches both the story and the art. Grounded in sound knowledge of child and family psychology, Daniel and His Starry Night Blanket can help children become more comfortable sharing their feelings, enable family discussion about difficult health matters, model strategies for parents, and aid young siblings in becoming more empathic toward one another.
"Daniel and His Starry Night Blanket is a compassionate and validating story for families balancing the needs of all their children when a child is diagnosed with cancer...Sally Loughridge has provided a valuable resource for navigating the emotional and relational struggles when a sibling has cancer." -Tookie Bright, LCSW Youth and Family Services Coordinator, The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing, Lewiston, Maine
