Tragedies are difficult for everyone, but they’re especially difficult for young children to understand. While most of us try to protect young children from hearing about tragedies, sometimes children will still see or hear about a tragedy in the news. Fortunately, Mister Rogers can help. He has a wonderful quote:
“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of ‘disaster,’ I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world.” Fred Rogers
I created a word art freebie for parents and teachers based on that quote.
“Look for the Helpers” Mister Rogers Word Art Freebie
To print for home or classroom use, feel free to download the word art freebie without watermark. If you’d like to share the image online, use the image with the watermark and link to my post and/or Facebook page.
To download, click here and then click on the file image in the upper right corner of the PDF to save to your computer (just choose where you want it saved).
Note: I wanted community helper images that were gender neutral and multicultural. I was happy that Dancing into First had a pack with the images I needed.
