The Perfect Shelter by Clare Helen Welsh and Asa Gilland (Sibling who is ill)

SKU 00201
In stock
Product Details

I am so delighted this book is now out in paperback. Clare Helen Welsh has a real talent for writing heart warming stories, sometimes about difficult issues, but where you always feel like you have been hugged after reading it.

The Perfect Shelter is illustrated by Asa Gilland, bold and colourful illustrations, which also capture the emotions on the characters faces so well making this such a great book to share.

The story is about a young girl who is making a den with her sister outside. But, she gradually begins to realise something is wrong and that her sister is sick. it so carefully takes you through all the emotions a child might feel, along with the sense that something is missing when her sister is being treated in hospital. Then a while later her sister is at home recovering and they decide to make an indoor den together.

Could be great for exploring other kinds of loss and absence too.
