Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-Hear My Roar utilizes three bears to demonstrate a family-violence scenario from its insidious onset through escalation and departure of the mother and child to a shelter while the father is confronted and begins to seek treatment. Its intent is to act as a framework for discussing feelings and challenging the idea of violence as a way of controlling other people. Depicted throughout are the efforts of the female and child to placate the violent male, the guilt and blame they assume, the cub's ``acting out'' through tantrums and role-playing with toys, and the eventual physical symptoms they experience as a result of the stress and anxiety. Their visit to the family physician places them on the road to recovery and healing. An introduction and afterword offer suggestions for utilizing the book with children of varying ages and attention spans and stresses the importance of sharing feelings, ideas, plans, and hopes for the future. Illustrated with Krykorka's forest green-tint linoleum cuts, the story holds content potential but is nonetheless pedantic. Its message compares similarly with that in Sharon C. Bernstein's A Family That Fights (Albert Whitman, 1991) and Diane Davis's Something Is Wrong At My House (Parenting, 1985) and is to be considered as an additional purchase.-Celia A. Huffman, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Cleveland

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I use this book in my psychotherapy practice with children from families affected by domestic violence. It is helpful and children understand the metaphor about the dad who is violent and who drinks.It is specific enough about how scary it is for children when the dad drinks and is violent yet not too specific so children can relate. At the end there is hope for change.
