A Kids Book About School Shootings
For Ages 5+
School shootings are a tragic reality. And while they’re not as common as they seem, they are still very real, and so is the fear, anxiety, and trauma that comes with them—even if you’ve never actually experienced one. This book will help grownups and kids better understand school shootings and encourage us to be prepared while reminding us that we should never let the fear of the what ifs take over our lives.
Crystal Woodman Miller is an author, speaker, Columbine shooting survivor, mental health advocate, and warrior of hope who encourages others in the challenges they face. She’s also the creative director of making magical memories for her three kids and husband and attempts to love others like she has been loved by God.

As an educator who is also a mass shooting survivor, I have had to keep my students calm during a lock down. Thankfully, the threat did not prove out, but our children live with this fear daily. They need to have a way to talk, express emotions and thoughts, in a safe manner. This book, written by the amazing Crystal Woodman Miller, is a fabulous way to open up the conversation with our youngest generation. My hope is that books like this will teach our young people to not live in fear, AND to also recognize that expressing the difficult feelings can hopefully help lead to an end to school shootings entirely.
Excellent book written with true compassion and truthfulness. Written by a survivor and a mom who looks to help our youth and adults through a world that sadly can be very terrifying. Highly recommend!
Sad to know this is a topic that we have to discuss with our children, but it is very real and the reality we all live in. This book helps start that conversation and to ensure families can keep open dialogue on a hard topic. Appreciate the author so much for using her own experience to be able to reach out to families and keep the issue on forefront, to get kids and parents to talk about the tough stuff and not brushed under rug until next headline hits.
As a mass shooting survivor, law enforcement officer, and active shooter trainer this book couldn’t have been written any better. This topic is hard to understand at any age and this book brings the emotions surrounding this topic to life in a safe and healthy way. I highly recommend this book for teachers and parents. I know I will use it and recommend in my trainings as well.
