The book walks you through and helps ease the anxiety of the real-life events that happen during Sammy’s hospital visit and beyond. The surprise kisses are a brilliant and whimsical way to portray all of Sammy’s get-well wishes, thoughts and prayers. They are Sammy’s reminders of how much she is loved.
As a pediatrician, I think this story about dealing with a [cumbersome] cast is just right. It is very nicely done.
Walter Harrison, MD, FAAP
Comforting, sweet story…captures the feelings of the whole family. It realistically portrays the patience needed before a child is restored to full activity. This is a loving story that educates, encourages and entertains.
