Jenny is Scared! When Sad Things Happen in the World by Carol Shuman

A gentle, comforting, coping story for children who are aware of the threats of violence and terrorism in the world. A range of fears, feelings and questions are explored. Safety, hope and comfort are offered in terms that are honest and reasonable - including the acknowledgement that we cannot control everything. The child reader is encouraged to talk to parents, friends, and other caregivers, and to be part of the long-term solution of tolerance and love for humanity. Suitable for children aged 4-8.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
