Mama’s Knight: A Cancer Story Of Love – Review & Giveaway


Mama’s Knight by Auroroa Whittet –Book Review

Encouraged… comforted… inspired… these are not words that normally come to mind when one thinks about cancer, let alone how to share a difficult diagnosis and journey with a young child – but these words describe how I felt after reading Aurora Whittet’s wonderful book Mama’s Knight: A Cancer Story Of Love.

If you are a mom who has cancer, Mama’s Knight provides you with the emotional tools you need to communicate what you are going through with your child. This book takes you and your child on a personal, interactive journey where he or she is the hero of the story.

The two of you will personalize the large, hardcover book by filling in the book with your child’s name, photo and responses – use charts to help you identify the things you are feeling – clip personalized coupons when you need to seek outside help – and complete a personalized scrapbook of your special times together!


Another plus: the book is filled with warm, diverse images that children and families from all backgrounds can relate to!

Mama’s Knight is one of those books that I hope you don’t have a personal need for – but if you do, I cannot think of a better companion to recommend to you and your child!

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
