Introduces children to the realities of natural disasters, terrorism and other forms of tragedy.
In age-appropriate language and tone, Dr. Roberts explains what tragedy is, the feelings it may create and how to manage those feelings. She also emphasizes the good that can come out of tragedy, looking at how people help one another in caring, compassionate and heroic ways. The book's question-and-answer format will help parents have a meaningful conversation about these difficult topics with their children and equip parents to better handle questions that arise when children are exposed to the news.
