The perfect shelter

Welsh, Clare HelenGilland, Asa(Illustrated by)
See all formats and editions

A powerfully told story from Clare Helen Welsh and Asa Gilland that explores the emotions we feel when someone we love is battling a serious illness. At first, nobody knew. It seemed as if today would be like yesterday forever, the perfect day to build a shelter in the woods.

Then, my sister changed - she was more tired than before.

More quiet. When we learn that she is sick, really sick, it feels as though a storm has engulfed our whole family.

But, we will ride out this storm. And though today may be different from yesterday, today is the perfect day to build a shelter, together. A heartwarming book that sensitively tackles the tough subject of illness with authentic and empathetic tenderness.

Much like Michael Rosen's Sad Book, A Shelter for Sadness or The Building Boy, The Perfect Shelter offers children a way to understand and articulate complex, often overwhelming, emotions.
