Reviews - What do customers think about It's Not Your Fault, Koko Bear: A Read-Together Book for Parents and Young Children During Divorce (Lansky, Vicki)?
unrealistic Apr 27, 2008
I read the book to my two children and they simply looked at me and said ..."bears don't get divorced!" I think it is unrealistic and they're aren't any coping tools to resolve issues the PARENTS often create for the children after divorce or separation. It is cute but they seemed to have a hard time identifying with bears getting divorced.
Very helpful Jan 2, 2008
This book was helpful for my 5 & 7 year olds during divorce, but it contained things they will not experience, so that started more insecurity issues. Still had good ways to handle tough situations.
Excellent book!!! Nov 2, 2007
This book has been wonderful for discussing divorce in a nurturing way with a 5 year old. It is a favorite at bedtime, and is well written for young children. I highly recommend it for anyone who needs to answer childrens' questions about divorce.

very good book for a older child i would not recommend for a young child
Perfect for 6 yr old May 14, 2007
Koko has become my daughter's favorite book. The book answers the questions that she has, validates her feelings and focuses on the issues that she is concerned about-pick up and drop off, dinner, bedtime. It is well written and perfect for 5-7 year old children. I was recommended Dinosaur Divorce by several people (without children)-my daughter is not ready for learning about stepparents or money issues. Koko bear is just what we were looking for.
