“Available in English and Spanish: “Monty’s Day in Court: What To Expect When You Have To Testify In Court”. “Monty’s Day in Court” is the first children’s book written from the perspective of a child who testifies in court against his abuser. Monty’s story serves as a tool for children in learning resilience and as an aid for those on the front lines helping young people through challenging times.
