Mom's Story

Mom's Story, A Child Learns About MS - Mary Jo Nickum This is an excellent little book telling the story of a mother's diagnosis with MS through the eyes of a small child.
The narrative is clear and straightforward explaining what happens and how the various members of the family react, without any deviation into the analysis of emotions or reactions.
It is simple enough to be read to a small child but also is a good introduction for any age encouraging a calm, informed approach to sooth fear and panic.

The second half of the book is devoted to a glossary, an explaination of some basic facts and many resources for contacting support groups and obtaining further information.,
