Product Description

From the Author

A good book to help kids 3-7 whose parents are divorcing
KoKo is a realistically sad unisex bear who learns the divorce is not KoKo's fault, that those sad feelings will pass, that a child can love and be loved by both parents even when living in a family apart. I believe this book will make a difference in your child's adjustment to divorce. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading With My 7 Yr Old Girl 29 Jun 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Sadly I am going through a divorce and find myself in the unusual position of being a single dad to 3 wonderful children the youngest of whom is a 7 year old girl.
This child had some difficulty in understanding what was happening and why. "Its Not Your Fault Koko Bear" explains in terms that she could understand what was happening to her family. We particularly liked the analogy of the family as a jigsaw, a concept I will use again and again.
She is now much more comfortable with the process as a whole and understands that mum and dad still love her and its ok to love the departed parent.
Please buy this book if you have confused shildren in this age range, if its the only book you buy on the subject.

4.0 out of 5 stars My son really related to KoKo Bear 19 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
My son is 3 1/2 and is having a hard time understanding why Daddy and Mommy don't live together anymore. This book helped me introduce the word Divorce to my son and was useful in explaining how to help my child cope with the feelings and trauma of separation. It gives useful tips to parents on how to talk and draw out your feelings. The illustrations were great and very realistic. My son wanted to read it twice!

5.0 out of 5 stars So touching and reassuring, comfort in a book! 8 Mar 2006
By Sugar
Format:Paperback
My daughter is 4 and her dad and I seperated about 2 years ago now. She's had a hard time, especially just recently as her dad is due to remarry, she has a new step-family and I am now in a new relationship. The poor love had a head full of questions she didn't understand and a heart full of sadness and worry that she didn't know how to deal with. She just didn't seem to know where she fit in anymore. This book is both moving and reassuring and is always on show in my daughter's bedroom. She thought she had done something really bad and thought I would leave her too. After reading Koko (a few times) she told me that she isn't alone after all, that Koko feels the same too and that it's OK to feel as she does and that it's all going to be OK. She now freely asks my partner and I and her dad and his partner questions whenever she is worried or upset. This is definately a "must buy".

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent Book 6 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is an excellent tool to pave the way for discussions on an extremely difficult subject. While it is suggested for older children, it certainly is appealing to younger children. Most helpful is the text for the parent, shown on each page, explaining the difficult emotions that children feel when their parents are divorcing. For the child, it presents divorce in a realistic way, and validates the confusion, fear, and anger so prevalent in children of divorcing parents.
This book is a "must-have" for your children's library if you are divorcing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good gentle book about divorce 10 Aug 2009
Format:Paperback
This is a good book to tackle the difficult subject of divorce with young children. The book is well written and has good advice for parents inside. It does mention the word divorce alot and is not best suited to families who are just separating because of this but overall it is a well thought out and useful book.

Format:Paperback
My son is 4 and has suffered quietly after his dad left very suddenly. He thought that it was his fault and has been searching his soul and questioning each time he has not behaved perfectly. It has taken a lot to get him to talk about how he feels and I was astounded to find a book that said everything he was feeling and made him feel like he was not alone and that what he felt was normal and ok. I feel like koko could have been written about us.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for 5-7 age bracket 7 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good book but a little too informative for my 4 year old. Great for my 6 year old but he found it difficult to relate to a bear and asked why it's not a boy

1.0 out of 5 stars Caution 20 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I felt that this book would put an idea into my grandsons head that some how is at fault, where as he appears to have taken the split in his stride, so really it's about not making assumptions until you are clear that the child does blame themselves and then use the bool as a tool to help?
