This story was developed to help young children and their families talk about feelings and worries they may have after they have experienced an earthquake. The story describes children’s reactions and talks about how their parents help them to express their emotions and feel safer. In the back of the booklet, there is a parent guide that suggests ways that parents can use the story with their children.

This document is also available in Japanese, Nepalese, and Spanish.
