Jake and Tammy have lots to learn about life and the world they live in, particularly about health and sickness. During their adventures we, too, want to know the answers to the questions that Tammy and Jake ask. In a loving context their Mum and Dad tell them what they need to know about why people fall ill and what we can, and should, do to help. Together they discover the loyalty, forgiveness and love that we all search after. This is a great book for a child who has come across a serious illness for the first time in themselves, a friend or relative; or who is perhaps learning more about what it is to care for others.
Jake and Tammy live in Canterbury Place, the fictional setting for a series of books exploring deep issues. The Big Green Tree deals with life and death, The Dark Blue Bike with friendship and bullying, The Deep Black Pond with health and sickness, and The Lonely Grey Dog deals with love and loyalty. Together with their friends, family and neighbors Jake and Tammy have lots to learn about life and the world they live in. This moving, thoughtful and delightful series of books is written to both entertain and educate. Recommended for ages 8 to 12.
