Living with Illness: Jasper's Story - Living with Cystic Fibrosis Hardback

Part of the Living with Illness series


This powerful and eye opening picture book uses the first-person testimony of Jasper, a 10-year-old boy with cystic fibrosis.

Jasper explains what his condition is, the treatment he receives and the emotional challenges he faces.

Using Jasper's real first-person testimony creates an intimate and direct tone that will help students to empathise with people's differences.

Jasper's circumstances are easily relatable to children; he talks about school, his brother, friends, his hobbies and explains the complications that cystic fibrosis brings to these situations. The BAFTA award-winning stories were originally produced as animations for the BBC.

Aimed at children aged 9 and up, these powerful and evocative stories have now been captured in book form as rich, visual testimonies of the impact an illness has on a child's daily life and how they cope and are able to enjoy the life that they have.
