Trinka and Sam and the Rainy Windy Day is now in Vietnamese thanks to a collaboration with UNICEF USA and the Baker Institute in Houston and fabulous Vietnamese translators. We developed it to support families in Houston after Hurricane Harvey. We hope that it is helpful to Vietnamese families who experience hurricanes and typhoons in the USA and in Vietnam.

We wrote this story in response to the recent wildfires affecting Santa Rosa, Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino, and Santa Cruz. It is a free children's coloring book with a parent guide at the end. We are so sorry for all you are going through, and we hope this story is helpful to some of you. You are in our minds and hearts. We also hope this story helps all those affected by wildfires, including those in Southern California, Oregon, Oklahoma, and Montana.

Many of you have been asking us to share this story, and after a small name change and some touch-ups, we will be sharing it.
Oh . . . and for those who know the story, we've just written Part 2.
Our book, Once I Was Very Very Scared, was recently reviewed and featured in Patricia Tilton's Blog, Children's Books Heal. This month it has also been included in multiple websites to help children and families heal including: 1) Charlottesville Schools; 2) Mental Health America of Greater Houston; 3) Forbes, and 4) the Huffington Post. We are so glad if our book can make a difference in the lives of families.
Check out our new free downloadable PDFs. The handouts include characters from Once I Was Very Very Scared and can be used to help children process their emotional reactions and learn ways of coping with challenging emotions and events.

The plan was to distribute books in Turkey on June 20th, World Refugee Day.
It is so wonderful to have such great partners around the world working to help young children and families.
