Laura Ann Campbell

Grades K-6 (1999)


Events, questions and tragedies occur for which we struggle to find just the right words to explain them to our children.

STORYBOOKS FOR TOUGH TIMES is a collection of recommended storybooks for children grades K-6 broken into chapters dealing with different issues [Abuse, Adoption, Aging, Death, Disabilities and Differences, Families, Fears, Feelings, Growing Up, Homelessness, Illness, Moving, Siblings, Susbstance Abuse and War].

Within each chapter is a list of books [including author, title and publishing company], along with a summary of each book, a connection to a specific life issue and questions for your consideration in generating a dialogue with your child or student.

Author, Laura Ann Campbell has spent more than fifteen years working with children of all ages in both formal and informal educational settings. The mother of two children, she has a master's degree in elementary education.
