What About Me? When Brothers and Sisters Get Sick

by Allan Peterkin, MD, illustrated by Frances Middendorf - £10.50  Magination Press (1992)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780945354499 | ISBN 10: 0945354495

What about me? This question, usually unspoken, lies at the heart of this poignant story, as a young girl attempts to cope with her brother's being ill.
 
Beautifully written and illustrated, this story deals with the many complicated feelings the well child experiences in such a situation: guilt about having somehow caused the illness, fear that the sibling will die, anger over being left out, anxiety about catching the sickness, and longing for life to return to the way it was.
 
The story will allow parents and their well children to take some time out for one another and to forge a renewed sense of family.
