An acquaintance of mine was crossing the street with her four-year-old son Friday when a teenage driver struck them both. They're okay--she shattered her kneecap, the kid got a few stitches and a concussion. He's been having nightmares, though, waking up screaming. She's got an appointment for him with a counselor later this week, but she asked me if knew of any books for children that might help them deal with a trauma like that. I didn't know of any, but I said I knew who I could ask.

nightmares could also be a side effect of the concussion... she needs to speak to the neurologist about this!!!
