Review:

This was a beautiful book dealing with a difficult topic: when children’s parents separate, and how children are affected by it. It focused on the child’s point of view, and the questions or concerns they may feel when their parents are separating. It covered huge feelings that children may feel, such as abandonment, feeling it was their fault, and fear about where to live. There were prompts to ask the children how they felt at certain points in the book, and an exercise that could be completed at the end, along with more resources for children and parents.
