This hands-on workbook reassures children that they are not alone with their feelings and confusion following a murder. Activities and word games are designed to help legitimize intense feelings and explain the confusing actions of police, court system, and the media. Pieces of the murder stories of many children of various ages appear in the page margins, companioning the child reader and helping her/him see that this personal disaster is a relatively common and difficult experience. This is a valuable tool for the bereaved child to work on with a sympathetic adult.
