A Terrible Thing Happened

This book is absolutely perfect for helping children who have experienced any type of trauma understand their feelings, consciously and subconsciously. 

The story is about how sometimes we try to hide from the scary feelings created by trauma and how we may act out because of our trying to suppress those feelings. It also gives children new ways to cope with and handle these feelings while not telling them that everything is going to be okay. 

The best part about this book is that because we never learn what terrible thing happened to Sherman, we can tailor this book to be about any traumatic event a child might be going through. I have used this book for death, assault, amputation, car accidents, other accidents, burns and much much more. It really is such a versatile book. I always keep this in my bag ready to pull out.

You can find this book almost anywhere! But click here to purchase it from Amazon
