This article presents picture books that are considered as a sample of children's literature selections on war, terrorism, and natural disasters for pre-K to 3rd-grade children which were chosen with both young children and their teachers and parents in mind. The authors recommend these books to be used as read-alouds, so that caring adults who know and love young children will be available to help them navigate through somewhat confusing concepts with comforting explanations. While this bibliography focuses upon preschool through 3rd-grade children, the authors stress that these books are equally effective for use with older children. Thus, the ages included within the following annotations do not state a definitive upper limit.
