Love, Hugs, Hope: When Scary Things Happen focuses on how children can cope with significant and traumatic events in their lives.

Children feel fear, sadness, and anger. They become confused and struggle with their feelings. Love, Hugs, and Hope teaches there are ways of dealing with these emotions and helps children reaffirm fundamental truths about the world. In the wake of the tragic killings in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012, family therapist Christy Monson penned her thoughts on how the surviving children could manage emotionally through such a horrific event. Lori Nawyn, an artist and abuse survivor, illustrated the work to help children visually connect with their emotions and help them know what to do with these powerful feelings. Their collaboration, Love, Hugs,and  Hope: When Scary Things Happen is one of love and light and is meant to help children everywhere begin the process of healing.

Written after the tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, Love, Hugs, and Hope: When Scary Things Happen is an invaluable tool for helping children identify feelings that overwhelm them with anxiety and despair. Author Christy Monson guides readers through emotions of fear, sadness, and anger, then lends constructive and practical ideas for how to manage such feelings and seek comfort. Lori Nawyn’s engaging illustrations help young children understand that hope is only a hug away.

Awesome help!
by Rebekah Murcray
Format:Kindle Edition

We live near the mall in Oregon where there were shootings this year right before Sandy Hook. We tried to limit my children's exposure, but they "learned" a lot about both from the playground. This did an excellent job helping both of them process those events! Thank you!!!!!

Beautiful book
By Margot
Format:Kindle Edition

What a needed resource! I wish I'd had a book like this for my kids when they were little. It's never easy to help kids deal with tough problems, but this book makes it a little easier. I love knowing that it's written by a licensed therapist as well, so you can trust that the help given here is solid. It's simple, straightforward, and easy to understand. The illustrations are just right.

Simple, straightforward, powerful
By C. Miller
Format:Kindle Edition

Often we give kids too much credit. They grow up fast and are exposed to much more at an earlier age than the previous generation. Love, Hugs, Hope is a straight forward manual in a clever illustrated form to help kids process difficult life events.
