The Healing Heroes Book: Braving the Changes When Someone You Love Is Wounded in Service by Ellen Sabin is a book to support children and families as they face the changes that arise when someone they love is wounded in military service. It combines educational narrative, conversation starters, activities, and journal-style pages to help children honor their military family, explore their feelings, confront their concerns, find ways to feel better when they are down, and learn healthy coping skills. The book also provides sensitive and valuable information about wounds (including post-traumatic stress, brain injury, burns and amputations), care, and recovery.
