Here's a link to the five book worm review of Love, Hugs, and Hope
Why I liked this book– This
book is a necessity in every household. I think kids have to deal with
bad things all the time. Maybe not as big as the school shootings, but a
lot of other things in their lives, like being in a car accident, or a
relative dying. This book can help. The story has a great feeling to it –
a warm, calming, friendly – but serious – feeling. It is told in a very
simple way, but I think it tells a big story. The illustrations are
cartoon-like and make it easier to understand the story. The animals
mixed in make it cute. I think the story will also help parents and
teachers talk to kids about bad things that happen. I believe this is a
book that every family will have use of in their house.
Activities and Resources- Talk.
Talk about the book, about the event that happened 1 year ago, about
anything that gives you and/or your child negative feelings (anger,
sadness, fear, etc.).
