Publisher's Summary

On the News gently introduces young children to the realities of natural disasters, terrorism, and other forms of tragedy. In age-appropriate language and tone, Dr. Roberts explains what tragedy is, the feelings it may create, and how to manage those feelings. She also emphasizes the good that can come out of tragedy, looking at how people help one another in caring, compassionate, and heroic ways. The audiobook's question-and-answer format will help parents have a meaningful conversation about these difficult topics with their children and equip them to better handle questions that arise when children are exposed to the news.

The World Around Us series introduces children to complex cultural, social, and environmental issues they may encounter outside their homes, in a way that is accessible.
