Love, Hugs, and Hope: When Scary Things Happen
This is a book about love and light and is meant to help children everywhere begin the process of healing from tragedy.
Love, Hugs, and Hope: When Scary Things Happen aims to help children find safe ways to express their feelings when bad things happen. A beautiful two part message is embedded at the core of this lovely book. It proclaims: "Love chases away hate and light chases away the dark."
To my mind, the book accomplishes what the author set out to do and so eloquently states in her book: "Love chases away hate and light chases away the dark."

The story has a great feeling to it a warm, calming, friendly but serious feeling. It is told in a very simple way, but I think it tells a big story. I believe this is a book that every family will have use of in their house.
