Incarceration is a big word for a HUGE topic. It can bring up difficult questions and feelings—especially when it affects you directly. This book explores incarceration, crimes, and prison, as well as the power of choices. The author’s story highlights the impact of choices and how someone can grow, learn, and change the path they’ve been on.
Ethan Thrower is an alternative school social worker in Portland, Oregon, committed to social justice and restorative practices. He uses his own story of incarceration as a tool to discuss decision-making, resilience, and change.

Thrower's offering on what incarceration means to him, to family, to community - to all of us - is packaged for kids, and a must-read for kids of all ages across the ages. His passionate, direct account holds nothing back revealing the costs to our society by sanitizing incarceration and placing it "out there" somewhere. All of us are impacted and all of us will benefit from this uplifting, informative, and liberating narrative. The author's gift truly shines.
A kids Book About Incarceration
A Kids Book About Incarceration provides a medium for anyone to explore the process of incarceration, it’s impact on people, families and society. The book acts as a catalyst for conversation and reflection- highly recommend for EVERYONE - families, partners, educators, organizers, workforce developers, etc.
The author did an amazing job of breaking down the topic of incarceration to make it understandable to children. It also allowed space to have deeper conversations (systematic racism, oppression, impact on family) with kids who are a little older or ready to get more in depth. I will use this with my own child as well as students.
Ethan‘s story is important for all of us to know and understand. Incarceration impacts so many families and communities and yet we rarely talk about it in such honest and heartfelt ways. I’m so grateful to have this book for myself, as a parent and as a therapist.
