This 47-page booklet tells the story of Trinka and Sam, two mice who are friends and neighbors who survive a tornado and experience and cope with reactions, with help from their parents. It is designed to help children who have survived tornadoes to reflect on their experiences, and to help parents and other caregivers to talk with their children and support them in coping.
