?Teaching Young Children in Violent Times is an excellent resource for teachers to prepare young students to feel safe. Children cannot be entirely sheltered from the realities of violence witnessed in the community or through the media. However, if teachers follow the guidelines in this timely book, our children will grow up with less anxiety, as they create a more peaceful world.? ? Alvin F.
