Default Books

My husband is recently diagnosed with HD (though tested positive for gene some years ago, so not a surprise diagnosis)

Can anyone recommend any books I can read? I've bought some off amazon (real life experience type ones) - they are american, though I am enjoying the read (if enjoy is the right word!)

Also, we have a 4 year old. We aren't telling him yet, but I would like to get some sort of child friendly book to explain to him what HD is when the time comes he needs to know what is happening to his Daddy. Any recommendations?

Thanks all
