Review Quotes




I am a St. Jude cancer survivor and my story helped create this book. I think this book will help others find their "CAN" in cancer.

I am being treated for leukemia at Children's in Omaha, Nebraska. This book helped me to see that there really is a "CAN" in cancer. It also helped my family and friends understand what having cancer is really like!

Cole

About the Author



Julia Cook, M.S. is a national award-winning children's author, counselor, and parenting expert. She has presented in thousands of schools nationally and internationally, regularly speaks at education and counseling conferences, and has published children's books on a wide range of character and social development topics. The goal behind Cook's work is to actively involve young people in fun, memorable stories and teach them to become lifelong problem solvers. Inspiration for her books comes from working with children and carefully listening to counselors, parents, and teachers, in order to stay on top of needs in the classroom and at home. Cook has the innate ability to enter the worldview of a child through storybooks, giving children both the "what to say" and the "how to say it."

Allison Valentine is an artist and illustrator who spends her time creating fun and colorful artwork from her Connecticut art studio. She has illustrated multiple children's books, including several of Julia Cook's previous books, and has also received the AEP (Association for Educational Publishers) Distinguished Achievement Award.
