This book covers a lot of different issues around divorce e.g. the effects on friends at school, being visited by a social worker and the arrival of a new partner. Unfortunately, it is very brief on each aspect and therefore more suitable to initiate conversations with older children, I would guess at least over 5. Another disadvantage is that although the book conveys the positive outcomes of divorce many of the facial expressions are rather grim. However, the book does give you the chance to tell your children some things that are very hard to say e.g. "even if they (parents) dont live together, your mum and dad will always be your mum and dad", which I think does help both parents and children.
