Reasonable solution for difficult task,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dinosaurs Divorce: A Guide for Changing Families (Dino Life Guides for Families) (Paperback)
One of the problems of writing a book like this is that marriages differ and so do divorces. This therefore hit some spots but not others. I bought all the books on Amazon I could find on this topic and this was the best, however. It seems there are lots for under fives and very few for 5-10 year olds who possibly need it more - my child is 7 and her mother is doing her best to alienate her.
This does introduce some topics which you can expand as it suits you and engages the child. How well it works, however, depends on how well you've thought through the subsidiary questions. It also needs to be selectively used as some bits are a bit trite or America centric.
The best I've found, but not perfect.

This book is recommended by Richard Warshak in his excellent book Divorce Poison, along with The Boys and Girls Book About Divorce by Richard Gardner (who apparently coined the term Parental Alienation Syndrome). Warshak has also made a film for older kids and adults called Welcome Back Pluto, which can be ordered from his website www.warshak.com. Haven't seen it so can't personally recommend it but it might be worth your looking into. His book is, as I said, excellent. My very best wishes in your fight to protect your daughter from this terrible abuse; nothing could be more important.
