Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This short resource book for teachers and parents does a solid job of detailing how children are affected by war and terrorism. The authors use historical perspectives as well as current psychology explaining how students respond to the threat of these violent confrontations, whether they are living it or whether, like many American children during the September 11 events, they are viewing the devastation on television or through some other peripheral experience. A number of signs to look for in children of various ages are discussed and a number of hints as to how teachers/parents can facilitate productive responses to the situations are suggested. Chapters relating to context (children with family members in the military as well as children living in conflict zones), personal temperament and age help adult readers better understand the variance in the way children respond to war or terror. Additional chapters regarding the use of literature in the form of bibliotherapy and the importance of aesthetic activities in helping students work through issues should also help adult caregivers and teachers. My one concern with the bibliotherapy approach is that some adults might make assumptions about what is bothering a student and simply hand them a book thinking that the singular piece of literature will solve the problem; follow-up discussions are a must. While the authors indicate a need for kids to share, I didn't feel they were quite strong enough asserting why bibliotherapy must be used with care. Nevertheless, many adults will find this text useful in their work with children and adolescents. 2003, Association for Childhood Education International, Ages adult parent professional.
