Child of Mine ISBN: 9781934277126
Hartman, Carrie
Published by Maren Green Pub, 2007
A beautiful book to be shared between a mother and daughter. Not a story as such, but a mother's thoughts about her well-loved daughter who has behavioural and learning difficulties - the sorrows, the troubles, but ultimately the joy of realising, 'your giggles, your hugs, your curiosity...bring me happiness'. Gentle and loving, with remarkable illustrations full of space and colour and sensitivity. Written and illustrated by the mother of a child with these problems, it shows a depth of understanding and patience that is difficult to credit by those of us without such challenges in our lives. An American publication, it is available in this country from Gazelle Books - sales@gazellebooks.co.uk (Tel: 01524 68765).
