I loved reading this book with my son (8). He loves it too. The drawings are so lovely; they felt welcoming.
The text is accessible, positive and frank. I wish it had been around when I was young! There's a little author's note at the front that is a bit of guide for readers, but not just in a "how to talk to your kids" way. It's more of a "read this first to know your own trauma so you're not surprised." There is a lot of care/concern taken for the reader as a person. I really recommend this book.
