Bought this book to read for my sons 8 and 10.
It is spot on and talks about the importance of talking about feelings and that pushing feelings down or NOT talking about them will not make them go away. They just stay in the body. It also gives options on people to talk to if they cant speak to their parents. It talks about that life during and after a divorce for a while can be completely upside down and even horrible for a period, but that life does get easier at some point and that one or both parents often become happier when they don't live together anymore. It also describes in a way that they understand what exactly a 'Divorce'is when it comes to legality. It also stresses that it is NOT the children's fault and that they MUST remember that...(My oldest goes to therapy and he mentioned to her that he understood that it was not his fault). The book also includes words from other children the same age, which just makes it even more interesting for them. The fact that there are other children out there who is going through the same as them makes them feel less on their own. Read bit by bit and not too much at a time, as I felt it overwhelmed them. All in all, a very informative and helpful book that can either be read aloud by you or by themselves.

Very helpful 12 Mar 2008

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my son who is 9. He didn't understand why we divorced or anything about it. He loves this book. He said it made him feel so much better. I think it is great how it has other children's views written throughout the book. My son felt he was feeling the same way as the other kids, and he knew it was ok.

Great book for anyone with a curious child who doesn't understand.

Could have been better 27 Dec 2009
By Weena Cullins - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a clinician, I purchased this book to use with young clients adjusting to
their parents recent decision to divorce. I tried to use this book with children
11 years old and children around 7 years old. The text didn't fit either age group's needs well.
The book is adequate for introducing the idea of divorce. However, the information is a bit simplistic
for an older child whose parents have already divorced.

Good teaching tool 23 Sep 2007
By E. White - Published on
Format: Paperback
I use this book as a tool for providing small group counseling for elementary students. It helps kids understand that they did not cause the divorce so they can't fix it. It helps begin discussions about feelings and concerns they may have about two houses, two families, two sets of rules and other changes that happen as a result of a divorce.

Somewhat Disappointing 27 April 2012
By W. Lewis - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book offers what I would call a superficial exploration into the feelings kids have about a divorce and all that goes with it. The information that it does offer is good and I could see our kids nodding in agreement as I read to them. However, the book just seems to touch on the surface of the subjects. The big disappointment for me is that each section ends with several suggestions for further reading. I don't want to have to buy dozens of other books to make up for what this book is missing!

I purchased this book for my granddaughter and it was a Godsend! My daughter reported that she didn't know what she would have done without it. My granddaughter read it every night and sometimes with her mother. It was just the perfect book!
