Every day, it seems children witness more violence, be it in the home, on the way to school, or in the schoolyard. While we cannot prevent everything that might happen to our children, A Terrible Thing Happened helps young children process their feelings and reactions to it. "As a picture book, A Terrible Thing is an unqualified success, especially in terms of the all-important interaction of text and pictures. These illustrations are not only professionally executed, they serve the text extremely well, adding welcome touches of humor to the exposition of this very serious subject."-Michael Cart, Booklist Magazine
From the Publisher:
After Sherman sees something terrible happen, he becomes anxious and then angry, but when a counselor helps him talk about these emotions he feels better.
A gentle, reassuring story for children who have witnessed violence or been otherwise traumatized. Sherman Smith, a cuddly little raccoon, saw something terrible happen, and since that time he's had stomachaches and bad dreams and has even acted out in angry and hurtful ways. Then Sherman meets a counselor named Ms. Maple who helps him confront and work out his feelings. An afterward for parents and caregivers explains how they can help a child struggling with the aftermath of a traumatic event. Illustrations accompany the text.
