It seems like we deal with tragedy on a daily basis anymore. However, some days definitely have a bigger impact than others! There are so many scary things that happen in our word – and sometimes in our own backyard – that it’s no wonder people are scared.
As a teacher (or parent), how do we help our children deal with these tragedies? Honestly, I don’t know if there is one “right” answer – but I recently found a resource that is going to make it easier for me in the future!

After reading a post on another teaching blog, I knew I HAD to have this book! It recently arrived in the mail, and I couldn’t love it any more.
A young ant has lost his ant hill school, and he’s afraid of returning. The mother aunt goes on to tell him everything will be all right with comforting words that are repeated throughout the story. It truly brought tears to my eyes as I thought of the school shootings in Columbine and Sandy Hook and too many others…
This story is going to stay tucked away in my classroom with the hopes that I NEVER have to use it, but it’s also reassuring to know that it will be readily accessible if I ever have to deal with a tragedy again (whether in the classroom or with my own children).
How could you use this book with your own children or classroom kids?
