Preparing children for an unpredictable event, such as an earthquake, is one of the best ways to reduce trauma and maintain children’s mental and emotional well-beings. We recommend reading and practicing the skills introduced in this book on a regular basis. When children know what to do, they are less likely to be scarred by the traumatic event.
This adorable picture book can also be used post-earthquake to help kids cope with their emotions and help them make sense of what has happened.
