Young children are hyper aware of the world around them. Whether or not you and your family have been directly impacted by the incident of gun violence on April 17th, your child may come to you with questions. As caregivers, talking with children about violence can seem like a daunting task, but sharing a book can help to guide a conversation. Having conversations with trusted adults and receiving emotional support can help to comfort a child after a tragedy occurs.

If these titles don’t contain the information or topics you’re looking for, we’re happy to offer personalized assistance to find titles that can meet your needs.
