How does a child cope when a parent disappears? This gentle story is ideal for sharing with a child who can't understand why Mom or Dad is gone, and when—if ever—the parent might return. Created by a clinical social worker and school social worker/mother and son team, Where Is My Mommy? helps children work through loss and grief. Can be used by therapeutic child care programs, school and preschool counselors and social workers, in support groups and individual counseling, and by family members, guardians and foster parents. Especially helpful in situations without closure such as abandonment.
