it was amazing

"Beautiful Child" written by Torey Hayden was well written and very informative. The story speaks to all who love children and want to reach out to the little ones who are trapped in silence, who cannot tell of the vicious acts that has happened to them to cause them to retreat into silence and into lashing out against any who try to get close enough to try to help them.

"Beautiful Child" is a awesome story told by Torey Hayden, and the steps she used to get close to Venus. Venus is a seven year old who is trapped in silence, who never speaks, listens, or acknowledges another human being that is in the same room with her. Anyone who accidently touched or bumped into her sent Venus into a rage that would take two people to control her, so she would not come to harm.

"Beautiful Child" is a journey into the world of children who live day to day in the world of silence, and then suddenly erupting into violence, that is very scary and very emotionally scarring on the child and the caretakers and the teachers who learn how to help these little ones, who do not have the words to tell of what is happening to them.

If you have never read any of Torey Hayden books then please do pick up her books, she has written "One Child", "Somebody Elses Kid". "Murphy's Boy", amoung other books.
