Big Tree is Sick

By Natalie slosse & Rocio Del Moral; Translated by Emy Smid

Snibbles and Big Tree are best friends! They have always

hung out together, and Snibbles loves Big Tree very

much. When Big Tree unexpectedly falls ill with

woodworm, Snibbles is very upset and angry. The illness

is a very bad one and Big Tree does not feel well and

doesn't want to play for a long time. Poor Snibbles! He

wants Big Tree to get better, but he feels as if there is

nothing he can do. What can Snibbles and his friends do

to help Big Tree through his treatment and recovery?


This beautifully illustrated storybook describes the anger

and emotion that many children encounter when a close

relative or friend is diagnosed with a long-term illness,

such as cancer. The story of Big Tree depicts how things

are often out of your control and sets out effective

strategies for dealing with these emotions. This story

features loveable characters and vivid illustrations, as

well as activities for children aged 5+ to complete with

their parents or professionals in times of illness and loss.
