Using Books to Help Build
a Child’s Coping Skills
Bobby’s Books is a program that uses books to help children and adults deal with difficult issues. Using children's literature as a springboard for conversations will give kids the chance to express their feelings and tell their own stories.
At the day's end, Grandfather Twilight walks in the forest to perform his evening task, bringing the miracle of night to the world.
This book discusses gentle approaches to life. It discusses the importance of taking time to break from reality and embrace the quiet. Through simple acts such as listening to soft music, snuggling with your child, listening to the world around you, you can gain a sense of calm in a chaotic world.

Bobby's Books provides an opportunity for parents and professionals to discuss major issues in the lives of children using a Bibliotherapeutic approach. This project goes the additional step of providing curriculum for each book and training in the use of books. Providing a way for parent and child to be together and heal together is a positive approach to processing grief for the family.
