This book delivers concrete information to children who experience conflicting and confusing emotions when a parent is incarcerated. The therapeutic activities and resources included provide constructive ways to successfully navigate the challenges and fears they face. Both books are excellent resources for families, school libraries, and counseling offices.

Provides relevant information to children that supports their understanding of incarceration and encourages them explore their own feelings and experiences. The combination of reflective activities for children with tips for parents and professionals is invaluable!

The support pages alone are filled with invaluable resources and ideas. The constructive and positive suggestions can provide comfort for all in the knowledge that they are not alone in the struggle.

I love the non-judgmental approach; the photographs help promote positive management of difficult feelings and emotions. Both books project a compassionate and understanding tone and provide a wealth of information and answers to common yet distressing questions.
