I Feel Safe
I Feel Safe
Thunder cracks. Lightning flashes. The lights go out. But Mommy, Daddy, Grandma and Grandpa help a young girl feel safe. What makes you feel safe? The storm is very scary! Then Grandma lights candles, Grandpa plays his guitar, Mommy makes cocoa, Daddy brings out some biscuits … and hugs are shared by all. But where are the cats, Frankie and JoJo? Have they run out of the house and into the storm?. The family searches high and low and in and out. When hope is gone, the cats emerge from their hiding place. All are safe. The last sentence in the book asks, What makes YOU feel safe? inviting caregivers and children to a conversation about coping with fears.
