Book Review | Soft Hugs for Mommy By Mandy Farmer, Illustrated By Melissa Pickens | A Heartwarming Guide to Understanding Fibromyalgia For Children

Soft Hugs for Mommy, by Mandy Farmer and illustrated by Melissa Pickens, is a tenderhearted book that helps young children understand what fibromyalgia is and how it affects their mothers. This beautifully illustrated book is a heartwarming and informative read that is sure to become a favorite resource for families dealing with fibromyalgia.

The book is written in a simple and easy-to-understand language, making it ideal for young children. It uses soft and gentle language to explain the symptoms of fibromyalgia, such as pain, fatigue, and sensitivity to touch. The story also highlights the importance of having a supportive family that can provide comfort and help with daily tasks.

Soft Hugs for Mommy is not just a storybook but a family resource experience. It also has family discussion questions that can help parents talk to their children about fibromyalgia and how they can support their mother.

Melissa Pickens beautifully illustrates the book, using soft and warm colors to create a cozy and comforting atmosphere. The illustrations are detailed and include hidden purple ribbons throughout the pages, which can be a fun activity for children to find.

As a reader who personally understands the challenges of fibromyalgia, I wholeheartedly recommend this book. It’s a heartwarming and informative read that will greatly assist young children in understanding and coping with their mother’s condition.
