El cuento narra la historia del zorrito Sherman Smith, quien vio una cosa terrible que lo perturbaba. Tenía pesadillas, hasta que un día encontró a alguien que le ayudó a hablar de aquella cosa terrible, y eso lo hizo sentir mejor. Mediante este libro podremos ayudar a los niños a superar algún acontecimiento traumático. Es sabido que la exposición indirecta a la violencia puede ser traumática para los pequeños. Desgraciadamente, hoy en día, las noticias y experiencias cotidianas que reciben los niños están plagadas de agresiones y amenazas. Un niño puede ser testigo, por ejemplo, de violencia, de un robo o de un secuestro.  Sherman Smith saw the most terrible thing happen. At first, he tried to forget about it, but soon something inside him started to bother him. He felt nervous for no reason. Sometimes his stomach hurt. He had bad dreams. And he started to feel angry and do mean things, which got him in trouble. Then he met Ms. Maple, who helped him talk about the terrible thing that he had tried to forget. Now, Sherman is feeling much better. This gently told and tenderly illustrated story is for children who have witnessed any kind of violent or traumatic episode, including physical abuse, school or gang violence, accidents, homicide, suicide, and natural disasters such as floods or fire.
