About the Book

Who is this book for?: If your child is undergoing medical treatment, this book will help the children in your family understand what to expect in a realistic, yet uplifting way.

What’s the book about?: When Livy unexpectedly gets very sick and everything changes, she needs to find a way to endure it all. “Tiger Livy” is the story of how a child is able to transform her mindset and circumstances in order to thrive.

Why? We all want and often expect health, but anyone who has been seriously ill or helped a loved one with a disease knows how sickness can take over a person’s entire life. It's really hard. We know that just thinking like a tiger can’t solve all our problems, but the mental and emotional sides of healing are important to learn about.

Recovering from an illness takes compassion, education, patience, and support from our loved ones.

Reading helps us see the world differently and is a brilliant way to heal, grow and learn, too.

Even if you’ve never endured a serious illness, having empathy is crucial to helping those who are suffering. We hope this book helps everyone understand just a little more.

We encourage our readers to be kind and to find ways to make their communities a little brighter, just like Livy and her family do.
