I'm looking for a comprehensive list of books written on the elementary level which deal with childhood adversity. These could be books which are meant to be read with children who have ACEs, or could be made available, for example, in an elementary school wellness center, and could be read by these children themselves. There are many books about worries, fears, manners, anger management, kindness, and various character traits. What I am wanting to explore is books that deal more with actual childhood adversity. One example is "My Daddy Is In Jail", by Janet M. Bender, M. Ed. I recently went to my favorite bookstore (which happens to be the largest used and new bookstore in the world) in search of such materials and found very little, in a TINY section of miscellaneous children's issues. If you have such a list, please share!
As a Clinical Physiologist I just released the first book of the "Adventures of Hopper," trauma informed book series for educators and parents of kids ages 5-9.
The book series is designed to build resilience, greater psychological awareness and greater self confidence in youth to deal with adverse childish experiences including bullying and disaster trauma for better outcomes and to ameliorate trauma from many of the things they are dealing with nowadays.
The books are only $9.99 and can be found at Amazon or through my website at www.prepworld.org
