Kindness In A Scary World is a story about a family who witnesses coverage of a terrorist attack on TV and how the parents help the child cope by engaging in pro-social behavior. Everyone wants to feel safe and taking action is a powerful way to cope.
Terrorism is a difficult subject for everyone. No one wants to talk to children about terrorism. It is a difficult subject for adults to understand much less to try to explain to a child. But talking to children about terrorism is important otherwise they will make their own assumptions about what they see. Sometimes those assumptions are scarier than what really happened. Rebecca's newest book, Kindness In A Scary Worldis a non-threatening way to start the conversation. It contains important tips to help parents talk to their child and a beautiful story about finding ways to help your child cope by contributing positively to society. Please share information about Kindness In A Scary World with all your friends who have children or grandchildren. It is a must read for everyone who has children in their lives.
Kindness In A Scary World is available for pre-order at Amazon.
Writing children's books is an honor and a privilege that I hold close to my heart but it is one that my wallet cannot afford alone. Illustrating one picture book costs thousands of dollars. If your heart feels pulled to help I am grateful beyond words. Your kindness will always be remembered.

I write therapeutic books to help children, the people who provide therapy services for them and the people who care about them. Many of the books I write are designed to help children who have experienced traumatic events. These books are just as helpful to parents who are trying to help their children as they are to therapists. I also write children's fiction. I want to help children understand their own and another person's world view, to understand the experiences either they have had or other people have had and to help them feel less alone in the world. I enjoy writing stories that help children heal, grow and learn about themselves and the world around them. I truly believe as Dr. Angelou once said, "The world is changed one child at a time."
