Floating away : a book to help children understand addiction / Andrew J. Bauman.


"Addiction can be an incredibly difficult subject for parents and caregivers to discuss with children, who are often the ones most impacted by it. This book provides an avenue for dialogue with the over 18 million children who are affected by addiction in America. It follows a simple metaphor of addiction; the main character, Samuel, is swept away in a bubble. At first he is curious and excited, but he slowly becomes bored and isolated, encounters a devastating storm, and finally, tries to find his way back home to his family. His journey symbolizes the struggle of addiction in a way children can understand. Included in this book are family discussion questions, places for children to draw their own experiences, and additional resources to help navigate addiction issues."-- back cover.
