When tragedies happen we try to shield our children from the hurt and pain, but sometimes our kids find out more than we would like. Here are some recommended books and DVDs by librarians and psychologists to help parents talk with their children that may have questions and concerns. These titles may help children who may be grief-stricken, afraid or troubled.
It is suggested that these books are to be shared together and create an open discussion between parents and their children.
If you ever need additional assistance in finding suggested reads, never hesitate to contact your hometown librarian - we are here to help. Also, you are welcome to share your own recommendations in the comments below.
