"Parents looking for a book about separation or divorce will find few offering as positive, matter-of-fact, or child-centered as this one.... Simple, yet profoundly satisfying."
About the Author
Claire Masurel is the author of numerous books for children, including TOO BIG, illustrated by Hanako Wakiyama. TWO HOMES is her first book for Candlewick Press. She wrote the story after talking to a child who was sad about her parents recent divorce. She says, "To comfort her, I talked about her two homes, and all the many things she could do in them. It was a positive way of helping her accept the changes in her life, focusing not on what was missed, but on the abundance of good times and love that she would continue to share with her mom and dad."
Kady MacDonald Denton is the illustrator of A CHILD'S TREASURY OF NURSERY RHYMES and two books by Margaret Park Bridges - IF I WERE YOUR FATHER and IF I WERE YOUR MOTHER. TWO HOMES is her first book for Candlewick Press. She says, "Alex talks about simple things like toothbrushes, bedrooms, and friends and they are all special because they are part of the love Alex feels in both homes. I tried to show that love in the illustrations."

It is very simple, but an effective way for helping children to deal with the difficult situation of having two homes. It provides a character and situation with which the child can identify and I think that is why my son likes it so much.
A great little story for anyone in the same position.
The illustrations aren't very eye catching to draw the child in.
Wish I'd made a photo book myself and write captions in telling 'our' story instead.

Great for my nearly 3 year old. She took it to nursery and was proud to tell her friends she had 2 homes. It's to the point but without talking about divoice or split.Published 29 days ago by MACH
