Sam’s Foster Family
by Carol Platteuw

This book tells the story of Sam. Sam and his brothers were exposed to domestic violence in their birth family. The children have been placed in different foster families to keep them safe. As a result of his early experiences Sam does not like loud noises and is startled easily. Sam is being helped by a play therapist while he waits to hear where the Judge will decide he should live in the future.

This book explores the impact on children of being exposed to domestic violence, how children cannot manage at school if they are preoccupied by safety and how difficult it is for children to be in limbo – waiting for big decisions to be made.

The book can be read to children by their parent or by a professional working with them. Guidance notes are provided to assist the reader in exploring some of the issues within the book further. The books in the series can be read together to help children make sense of difficult situations These charming books are beautifully illustrated by Nicky Armstrong.
