Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Without a hint of jargon, Reiss sums up a lot of what experts have been advising on television and in the popular press. Her introductory remarks lend a sense of how acts of terrorism can affect various age groups--from infants to teens--but the text focuses on elementary and middle-graders, kids who understand the events and recognize at least some of the implications but are unable to handle their feelings and fit the facts into the context of their everyday lives. She goes on to summarize strategies (including using art and play) to help kids deal with fear and emotional overload, and she offers answers, truthful without being scary, to a number of questions kids are likely to ask: "Did this happen because I was bad?" "Are there any terrorists here?" She never pretends to know all the answers, but her commonsensical, secular approach is a good place to begin the soothing process. Stephanie Zvirin

Format: Paperback
I was looking for something that would help in explaining this whole horrible situation to my kids. This book really met the challenge, and helped me talk to my kids about what was scaring them (and me!)
There were two sections that were particularly helpful; one on strategies for helping your child cope, which included all kinds of things I never would have thought of (like watching your kids for unusual complaints of bruising, for example-which can be a sign of stress in younger kids who may not be able to verbalize what they're really feeling); and another on Answering Children's Questions (such as, Are we going to die, Will it happen here, Will bombs fall on us, and Can I stay home from school).
All in all, I found it really helpful. It's also pretty much the only book on this topic that I found.
