"I am overjoyed to find a picture book written so simply for children who live with chronic pain, like sickle cell, arthritis, burns, cancer, and lupus. Brenda Miles' book empowers children by encouraging them to use imagery/visualization and deep breathing to help them when their bodies are hurting. This is a very encouraging book to share with kids who are learning to cope with chronic pain. Wong's illustrations are whimsical ink and watercolors that inspire, uplift, calm, warm and sooth the child. They are exquisite."--Children's Books Heal

"The beautifully illustrated pages by Nicole Wong guide the reader or listener to use imagery such as snuggling with a puppy, wrapping oneself in a rainbow, or riding a cloud to ease the pain. Brenda Miles, the author, suggests using a calm, gentle breath to move the leaves on an imaginary tree. Breathing slowly and deeply, imagining the view from the clouds, and feeling the warmth of the sun right where it aches can also be used to reduce discomfort....Laughter can be a highly effective coping strategy. Imagining a purple hippo in a tutu doing ballet would put a smile on a child's face and then sending their laughter to just where they need it most would help their ouchies."--Pediatric Pain Letter
