The Corvallis-Benton County Public Library also has resources available for you and your children on the topics of stress, grief, trauma and reassurance.
A Terrible Thing Happened by Margaret M. Holmes and illustrated by Cary Pillo (2000).
"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."
Take time to reassure your young child, so that they feel loved, safe, and secure in uncertain times. Cuddle up with a feel-good book such as these:
Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney and illustrated by Anita Jeram (1995).
"During a bedtime game, every time Little Nutbrown Hare demonstrates how much he loves his father, Big Nutbrown Hare gently shows him that the love is returned even more."
Mommy Hugs by Karen Katz (2006).
"A loving mother counts the hugs she gives her baby throughout the day."For other suggestions or reference assistance, contact your Youth Services Librarians at the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library, 541-766-6794.
