Today, we mourn the tragic bombings that took place during the Boston Marathon. For parents and teachers, not only must they grapple with this horrific tragedy themselves, they also face the added difficulty of explaining this event to children. Here is a helpful resource from Joni Eareckson Tada.
Recently I mailed our children’s tract (that tackles this sticky question) to a little boy in Japan – his mother, a missionary, sent me this charming photo and told me how much he enjoyed reading it. There are somany awful things happening in the world and kids have honest questions. So I reasoned, I ought to tell my friends on the blog and on Facebook about this special booklet. You can always write Joni and Friends to receive a free copy, or download it here from ourKids’ Corner to give to the children in your life – and tell them to visit Kids’ Corner, a wonderful place for boys and girls with lots of fun activities and videos!
