Overview

Jenny and her brother Sam are scared! The TV has played news all morning, Jenny's piano lesson was canceled, and Mom and Dad forgot to make lunch. Jenny and Sam want to know what's going on and how not to be so scared, and Mom and Dad can help. With honest sensitivity, Jenny Is Scared! explores children's fears, and reactions surrounding terrorism, war, and other violent events.

A Note to Parents by author and psychologist Ann Rasmussen, PsyD, explains how young children respond to violence and tragedy, provides concrete suggestions for helping them feel more safe, and offers families ideas for making the world a better place.
