Addie's mom isn't home anymore : addiction is scary-especially when you don't know what it is / by Genia Calvin ; illustrated and designed by Laura Faraci.

Calvin, Genia, (author.). Faraci, Laura, (illustrator.).


"'What is an addiction?' This is a difficult question even for adults to fully understand and answer. Imagine being the child of an addict, confused as to why your mom is acting so differently. Addie is a young girl facing this problem. If she can't trust her mom, who can she trust? Should she tell someone about mom's strange behaviors? Does her mom even love her anymore? Scared, angry, and feeling unloved, she reaches out to her favorite teacher for help, but in Addie's eyes, this only made things worse. Addie's Mom Isn't Home Anymore is the first of Addie's four-part journey to answer this question, told through her own eyes and from her perspective. Addie's story is one of courage, trust, and learning to overcome fear to help someone you love, and is designed to help guide parents, guardians, and professionals through the process of educating children about addiction. Author Notes can be found in the back of this book to further assist adults in helping children to understand the disease of addiction."-- Page 4 of cover.
