Beautiful illustrated pages accompany the simple, yet well-thought-out, meaningful explanations. Both can be used as a talking point to discuss how a young person feels while dealing with an illness or a period in hospital.
The author takes the reader through the young person's trials, and tribulations, and the different emotions that a young person will be going through. She uses different types of emotions to demonstrate how a young person feels but most of all, gets the point across that no matter what they are going through or experiencing they are still the same person underneath and will be loved and cherished for being that way.
An excellent book for parents and children to share to find out about their real feelings as well as remind them, that the most important thing is that they are valued for being who they are.

You Are So Much More: An Inspiration for Children Healing From Illness or Injury by Serena Tejpar (Author), Anoosha Lalani (Illustrator), Iman Tejpar (Illustrator)
Research has shown that building resilience in the face of adversity or challenges helps children and young people develop effective coping strategies and improve long-term outcomes across a spectrum of illnesses. You Are So Much More reminds children who have gone through or are going through an illness or injury, that they are indeed so much more. Trauma survivor and medical student Serena Tejpar shares a story of inspiration, reflection, and encouragement that can be read over and over again.
"This book is so much more than a story, it is a message of strength and courage for children experiencing illness and hospitalization, for their parents and caregivers. The author refers to the reader in the first person and the narrative stimulates the internal resources of the child." -- Isabella Cassina, MA, PhD Candidate, registered Therapeutic Play Specialist and international speaker, author of The Magic Home: A Displaced Boy Finds a Way to Feel Better
"Tejpar creates a self dialogue with positive messages the child can use, reminding them of their strength, resilience, and bravery. I am pleased to read a book written by such a medical student. Her empathy will carry her far as she exercises her skills in the life work of healing others." -- Laurie Zelinger, PhD, ABPP, RPT-S, Board Certified Psychologist, author of Please Explain Vaccines to Me
"As a Play Therapist I am constantly working with children with chronic issues. I loved how You are So Much More focuses on the child and not the illness. I found it to be sweet, encouraging, uplifting and compassionate way of encouraging children with chronic illnesses to cherish themselves and cope with their emotions as they heal. At a time where many families are facing illness and hospitalizations it is a timely message that I am excited to share with the families I work with." -- Jill Osborne, EDS, LPC, CPCS, RPT-S, author of Sam Feels Better Now!
"This book is an amazing resource for children and families who are struggling with medical trauma. Within the pages, the reader will find messages of healing and hope which is truly important when we sometimes forget that sun can follow dark days." --Theresa Fraser, CYC-P, CPT-S, RP, MA, RCT, Trauma, Loss and Attachment Clinical Specialist, author of We're not all the same, But We're Family
