Alina All Alone (Paperback)
This book summons up all the pain of separation and loss . . . and the joy of being reunited.
In an era of never-before-seen difficulties, our very young children have been challenged by feelings of solitude and frustration. This book attempts to demonstrate to our youngsters that these feelings are shared and understood.
This book is unique in that there is a very distinct and purposeful absence of any adult's voice or perspective or commentary-there is no adult talking to Alina about what is happening. Alina's voice and reactions to isolation are hers alone, but key.
Alina demonstrates to adults and children alike that long-term persistence wins in the end, and that sometimes the only way to react to situations is to "stamp your feet, cross your arms and scream and shout until you're red in the face "
