GOOD RESOURCE Jul 27, 2006
You will find numerous reproducible pgs. in this book that will get even shy kids talking about family changes. Some of the pages in this workbook work well with family change situations OTHER than divorce, as well. I have used with children who are living temporarily with other relatives and are "bounced around" from relative to relative due to incarceration, drug abuse, etc. I think this book is very different from a lot of the others like it out there. It touches on topics not usually covered. The more I think about it, the more I love this book.
