What is wrong with Will?Experts Acclaim for Will the CourageousAs a parent, what should you do if your daughter or son told you that she or he had been sexually abused by someone? The subject of this book is certainly not a pleasant thing to read or talk about, but it is defi nitely one that needs to be discussed. Author Amy Barth, who has an extensive background in social work, deals with her material in a delicate and age-appropriate way. Amy Barths books would be an excellent resource to encourage any child who has experienced sexual abuse. It could also be used in controlled situations to introduce the topic in an effort to instruct children how to avoid becoming a sexual abuse victim.--Wayne S. Walker, Home School Book ReviewWill the Courageous supports important issues regarding sexual abuse that may arise in a young persons life. Written like a comforting letter from a survivor, the young reader will become aware of the importance and safety to report any encounters. The book is simply written and in understandable terms for any 6 to 9-year old. The information is concise, yet heartening and loving. Will the Courageous should be read with a parent present to encourage dialog about this significant subject.--Irene Watson, author of The Sitting SwingWill the Courageous relates a story that reconfirms what I have observed over many years. Abused children, male or female, universally believe that it is their fault. Their self-image is mangled- they need to tell the truth- and they must get help from someone who knows how to treat such an injury to the soul.--Fr. Heyward B. Ewart, III, PhD Author of Am I Bad?
