Terror acts have taken place in several countries recently, and the media attention they generate means that children are more exposed to hearing about terrorism than ever before. Using simple language suited to children aged 7+, this book is designed for an adult to read along with a child to help ease their misunderstanding and fear.

The authors, who are child psychologists, tackle a broad range of important but difficult questions with consideration, including: Why do some people and groups use terrorism? What are adults doing to prevent societies being hurt by terrorism? And what can we do when we feel worried and afraid?

An honest and helpful guide to talking about terrorism with children aged 7+, this reassuring book helps adults address children's questions and concerns, in a society where children are unfortunately increasingly aware to it.
