As a child, dealing with ongoing pain issues can become a lonely, scary experience. GrrrOUCH! Pain is like a grouchy bear is a non-fiction picture book suitable for children ages 6 to 10 about coping with pain.

GrrrOUCH! Pain is like a grouchy bear encourages children to communicate their feelings and to explore, visualize and describe their pain using words and images to validate their personal pain experiences. Children of various ages and cultures are shown interacting not only with their pain, but with supportive people in their everyday environment. The book’s message would also be helpful for children to understand the pain or illness of a friend, grandparent or other family member.
