2017 Book Tour




“There are beautiful illustrations on each page, which I think will help children feel less overwhelmed with the context of the book.
I don’t have children myself but this advice was so good I vowed to pass it on to as many people as possible – and it even helped me understand terrorism a bit better.
Overall, I really loved this book and I can’t stress enough how valuable the information included is.”

“We think we are protecting our kids by not saying anything but can you imagine how much worse we are making it in their heads? (I know I am guilty of this for sure.)
When we don’t share, their imagination runs wild. Fortunately, for this book, it helps explain the situation in a way kids can understand and gives P-E-A-R-L-S of wisdom for parents to open the communication with kids.”

“The step-by-step guidelines are very important and will help the kids understand about the terrorism. This book is both educational and fun to read. Every parent should have this book in their bookshelves. ”

“Please Explain Terrorism To Me” kept the attention of all my children, even my 4 year old! When I finished reading the story to my children, I had a conversation with my 9 year old daughter about what she thought of the book and about terrorism with the help of P-E-A-R-L-S of Wisdom at the end of the book. This book is so helpful for parents that want to talk about terrorism to their children but are unsure of where to start.”

“The story really highlights that children know what is going on, they see and hear things that we may not be aware of so ignoring the situation in the news may only serve to create increased fear and stress. Zelinger’s PEARLS approach  is a simple but effective, making sure children have access to appropriate information and are allowed the time to process it and respond with questions.  It is thought provoking, intelligent, caring: essential reading for parents in our troubled world.”
Laura, Musings of a Tired Mummy  11/22/2017

“The illustrations by Ann Israeli are brightly colored and approachable for children. Dr. Zelinger created a great resource for helping children understand this difficult, but highly relevant, topic.”

“One of the best parts of the book is a section after the story with advice for parents about talking to their children about terrorism. It’s meant to help create a bond while explaining a scary subject in a non-scary way, and allows parents to reassure their kids while also making sure they know they can always come to their parents with questions and fears.”
Lily Shadowlyn, The Faerie Review 11/18/2017

“The illustrations in the children’s part of the book are realistic and engaging. They will help draw children into the story without being frightening. The fact that the story is told from a child’s point of view will also help youngsters be more engaged with it as well.”
Teresa Kander, Memes and Fiction 11/17/2017

“Although this is geared for 7 years + my youngest are 3 & 4 years old and they benefited greatly from this as well as my older son, it allowed them all to ask their many questions, and it allowed me to step forward and explain it to them in a calm way without bubble wrapping them up and pretending nothing is going on with the world”
Fiona (“Fee”) Kelly, eBookAddicts 11/16/2017


“The book’s writing and explanations are very easy for anyone to understand and along with the brilliant illustrations make this an exceptionally [good] teaching aid. There is brilliant guidance notes in the book on how to get the best out of it for parents.”
Sharon Martin, Beck Valley Books 11/15/2017

“The illustrations are really good and the story line really mirrors what a child’s life is like. The advice given to parents on how to deal with explaining terrorists and terrorism is in my opinion–spot on.”
