"Where Did My Friend Go" is a therapeutic picture book for young children ages 3 to 8 who have witnessed or heard about the traumatic death of a classmate, neighbor or friend. Beautiful illustrations and comforting text help the young child process feelings about the loss of a friend and reassure the child that the adults in her life will keep her safe. Process questions in the back of the book help any adult (teacher, parent, or therapist) discuss these issues in a safe, developmentally appropriate way to help the young child cope with her feelings and get the support she needs from the adults around her to help her to feel safe again.
I highly recommend this book to any parent, therapist, teacher or other adult who interacts with children who have witnessed or heard about traumatic death and violence. This is an excellent resource for community leaders, school districts, grant holders and philanthropists to purchase copies for placement in head start sites, community clinics, emergency rooms, community shelters and schools.
