Lions and Tigers and Terrorists, Oh My! How to Protect Your Child in a Time of Terror is the first and only book about terrorism for kids (and their parents, teachers and therapists). Internationally acclaimed, it won the 2018 New York, London, Paris and Hollywood Book Festivals (in the Children's Book category). The first half of the book helps grownups understand how to talk to kids about terrorism, answer their most frequently asked questions, recognize symptoms of their anxiety and build resilience. The second half is a picture book for kids (5-14 years old) that gives them a gentle introduction to terrorism, helps them express their feelings and empowers them to face challenges in today's world. Terrorism is the must-have 'birds and the bees' talk for the 21st century! It is a fact of life that families, schools and clinics need to help kids understand, without scaring the pants off of them. Recommended by leading terrorism experts, top educators and kids, themselves, this book is the answer!
