This book succeeds in doing a difficult and vital job: explaining a particularly frightening phenomenon to children in a way that's fair and in language that's understandable. Having read or listened to the book, children will feel clearer and less scared. Carers and professionals will, in turn, feel more confident about having the conversations that really matter.
Carol Lozier LCSW, author of DBT Therapeutic Activity Ideas for Working with Teens
The authors do an excellent job transforming scary concepts into clear and candid explanations so they are much less frightening to children. A section for children provides practical coping skills to manage worries of dramatic news. Another section equips teachers, parents and other adults to answer tough questions while providing much needed reassurance.
