“Who Cares?” is part of the Chan is a Caregiver collection. This children’s book inspires compassion and generosity in a simple and imaginative manner for the youngest of girls and boys. Brimming with colorful illustrations, the book gently introduces children to the disease of ALS and gives specific attention to the role played by caregivers. In an age appropriate manner, children will be taught about the crucial role friends and caregivers play.

Lou Gehrig’s disease affects people of all ages, races, and backgrounds. This disease is serious, and being there for those diagnosed with ALS is critical. Introducing children to this sort of thing can be difficult, but with the help of “Who Cares?” you can teach your children about this sensitive issue and inspire them to play a pivotal role in its solution.

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy from Smith Publicity. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Who Cares? is about Chan who is a CALS which is a caregiver to someone living with ALS. Ren is a PALS which is a person living with ALS. The book explains everything that Chan does for Ren every day. It also explains that people with ALS need a lot of help so having a caregiver is extremely important.

Children will learn that PALS are regular people who like to do regular things, but they need help to do them. Who Cares? explains this so that children can understand it. It is written well and is beautifully illustrated.
