A friend and colleague suggested this book to me and I was pleasantly surprised by the excellent writing of the stories. Many professionals and non-professionals can find a story within this book to help them talk to children. I tried them and they work well!!
Great work by the authors!

When children's lives are disrupted through trauma, absent parents, divorce and other issues that cause them emotional pain their development is effected. For those of us who are trying to raise them with nurturing, loving environments this book provides ways to help us heal the hurts in their lives. Although it is not an easy read it is the first book I have found to address the issues of how to go about helping children rebuild their shattered lives. I wish we'd have had it when we adopted our son many years ago. Now it is a useful approach for grandparents raising grand children.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
