Books to Help Children Understand Natural Disasters

8 Books To Help Children Understand Natural Disasters And Cope With Anxiety

See this post for tips on talking to your child about Hurricane Harvey & Irma and the flooding and helping your child cope, recover and manage anxiety. God Bless All of You...

A little squirrel announces that he was once very, very, scared and finds out that he is not alone. Lots of little animals went through scary experiences, but they react in different ways. Turtle hides and gets a tummy ache, monkey clings, dog barks, and elephant doesn’t like to talk about it. They need help, and they get help from grown-ups who help them feel safe and learn ways to cope with difficult feelings. This story was written to help children and grown-ups understand how stress can affect children and ways to help them.

Sherman Smith saw the most terrible thing happen. At first he tried to forget about it, but something inside him started to bother him. He felt nervous and had bad dreams. Then he met someone who helped him talk about the terrible thing, and made him feel better.

Kids learn well through repetition, and simple easy to 'get' language. 
Your children will incorporate the mindful mantra I Can Handle It almost immediately after reading this book!  
In a tough situation they will think 'I can handle it', when they are dealing with tough emotions, they will think 'I can handle it!'.  
Even if they aren't saying the words out loud, if they learn and practice this mantra it will become a part of their self talk.
Positive self talk is incredibly important for improving and maintaining mental health and the mindful mantra books are a way to plant that positivity right into a child's head!
Help your child learn to handle with difficult emotions along with Sebastien, and provide a tool for lifelong confidence.

Depression and anxiety don't discriminate and our kids need help. I Can Handle It equips children with a necessary skill to alleviate everyday anxieties that arise in their lives. 
And because teachers and parents have such a difficult and important job, this book includes a resource for both. Simply go to to get the free resources!

Learning to deal with anxiety is an important step in a child's healthy emotional growth. Conquering fears, and not avoiding them, is the lesson imparted in this story. David could not stop thinking about the basket he had missed at the end of the big game. He was worried that he might do it again. He was worried that his team mates would be angry with him. He was worried that his parents would not be proud of him. He was also worried about an upcoming math test. In fact, David was worried a lot. "Should I quit the team?" he asked himself. "Should I be sick tomorrow and miss the math test?" Luckily, David finally confided in his parents and school nurse, both of whom gave him support and techniques for controlling the "worry beast" within him. Delightfully illustrated, it focuses on a very real and essential topic.

A comforting, coping story for children who are aware of the threats of violence and terrorism in the world. A range of fears, feelings and questions are explored. The child reader is encouraged to talk to parents, friends and other caregivers.

Lovable, reliable Clifford comes to the rescue when a hurricane strikes. Once again, the heroism and humor of America's favorite Big Red Dog saves the day--and Emily Elizabeth's grandparents' home--when the big storm comes.
