"Love, Hugs, and Hope"
Lynn Parson's says, "We live in a world where tragedy touches us all. It is especially
difficult to explain the unexplainable to children when you don't know
what to do.
"This book is the perfect tool to prompt conversations and provide coping
strategies with the youngsters you love. An excellent tool for parents,
teachers, and therapists. I regret that many little ones have to deal
the harsh realities of 2013, but am glad that this resource is now
available. I intend to get copies to keep for emergencies, and I
recommend you do, too."
Written after the tragic Newtown, Connecticut, shooting, this book is an
invaluable tool to help parents and children work through feelings after a
tragedy. Our kids deal, not only with national tragedies, but every day ones
like death of a grandparent, loss of a puppy, or divorce. This book guides
readers through emotions of fear, sadness and anger, then offers constructive
ideas for managing these feelings and seeking comfort. The message of the book
is that love chases away hate and light banishes darkness. Lori Nawyn's
engaging illustrations help the reader know that hope is only a hug away.
