The Moon Balloon Song by Ken Read-Brown is based on the book The Moon Balloon by Joan Drescher. Produced with assistance by Helping Children Cope and Friends of Hope at South Shore Hospital.
Talking to children about a loved one’s cancer or other significant life stressors isn’t easy. That’s why South Shore Hospital’s Friends of Hope offers a free, 2-hour, communication enhancement program to help children ages 5-10 and their families.
Our story and art program engages young children in an imaginative, creative experience that enables them to talk comfortably about feelings through their drawings.
Using The Moon Balloon™ book, by Joan Drescher, children can express feelings through symbols and images that they may be unable to say in words. Children and adults learn together, and later can use the same methods and materials at home to discuss feelings about a loved one’s illness or other life stressor.
