MilaMoreIn an easily understood, beautifully illustrated style, Mommys Disease helps families navigate the difficult waters of alcoholism.Mila doesnt know why her mom doesnt show up for dinners, or soccer games or why she acts funny sometimes. Mila thinks its because her mom doesnt want to be with her, that she hasnt been the best girl she can be, that she should try harder. But, Daddy tells Mila that Mommy has a disease called alcoholism. She helps Mila, and her faithful dog Annie, understand what this disease is and how it affects Mommy, and the whole family. He teaches Mila that she is not responsible for Mommys behavior and that gives Mila the peace she needs to foster a healthy childhood.Praise for Daddys Disease:“Carolyn Hannan Bell has given a gift to thousands of children and their parents with her book: Daddys Disease. A wonderful book for children who have a parent who has alcoholism. With gentle insight and poignant stories, she introduces us to 7-year-old Tommy whose father is an active alcoholic. Like most children of alcoholics, he is confused, angry and feels its his fault. This is where Carolyn takes over the voice of Tommys mother and holds his hand and heart while she guides them through these difficult waters.This is a childrens book that everyone living with alcohol should read. Thank you Carolyn”Daniel Gottlieb, PhDHost: Voices in the Family WHYY FMAuthor: “Letters to Sam”, “Wisdom of Sam” and forthcoming The Wisdom Were Born With
