Video review – Please Explain “Terrorism” to Me! by Laurie Zelinger, PhD

Lady Lilith writes:

Please Explain Terrorism to Me is a really important book to read to kids. I remember growing up, when terrorism was less, I had a friend who had a cousin who was attacked in Iran. With the increase of attacks and hatred lately, it is important to make kids aware on an age appropriate level. Please Explain Terrorism to Me is a very open book that starts off with the basics allowing the parents to fill in all of the important details.

Complemented by exquisite, colorful artwork, Dr. Zelinger skillfully crafts an easily relatable children’s story using everyday situations, around the oppressive concept of Terrorism in the news. With masterful understanding of the child’s world, new and frightening concepts are introduced carefully and gently, with the child’s perspective in mind. Dr. Zelinger provides parent coaching to further the dialogue in her P-E-A-R-L-S of Wisdom section (Prepare, Explain, Answer, Reassure, Listen, Safeguard) where caregivers are given scripts to guide them, as well room for individuality. This pioneer book helps children and parents face a critical, often avoided topic with reassurance and calm.
