What to Say, and When to Say It, After the Next Tragedy Kyle Pruett, an internationally known child psychiatrist and expert on children, family relationships, and fathers recommends our book.
"Books can help children relate to their feelings. Reading stories with children and talking about how the characters may feel often helps young ones open up and begin to talk about their own feelings and fears. A few of my favorite books to support children in sharing and talking about their feelings include Once I Was Very Very Scared by Chandra Ippen; My Friend is Sad by Mo Willems; The Rabbit Listened by Cori Doerrfeld; and Lots of Feelings by Shelley Rotner."

Use Books to Support Children through Distress, Grief “Books can be read together, or older students can read independently and then come together to discuss the book with a caring adult. Adults can ask open-ended questions about how the characters felt and what they did to handle their situations,” Beecher said. For example, the book “Once I Was Very, Very Scared,” by Chandra Ghosh Ippen, features animal characters who go through scary experiences and have different ways of managing their feelings. This can help adults talk with preschoolers and early elementary children about strategies that might work for them.
