Fabulous! Aug 1, 2007
Being a teacher and a child of divorce I found this book to be perfect for parents to read WITH their child when going through a divorce. It is an easy read for the child and brings up topics that goes through a child's mind during divorce. It has a religious focus, but it's hard to get through difficult times without your faith. I recommend this book to parents at school when I learn they are going through a divorce.
Suprised by religious focus Jan 21, 2004
I was very disappointed to learn that the book had such a religious focus. I didn't feel that I got that information from what I read. Your buyers should be aware of this. I bought the book for my niece and she was turned off by this. I regret buying the book for her.
Read this to your kids Aug 22, 2000
This is a fantastic book to read to your kids. It's made up of short (1-2 page) chapters on topics that kids are concerned about when facing their parent's divorce. The great thing about it is the questions it asks. It would take 10 minutes to read a chapter and then we'd spend the following hour talking about not just the topic of the chapter, but the 1000 other questions the kids had that reading the chapter helped bring out. Think of it as a discussion primer.
