Good for split families.
Reviewed in the United States on 30 November 2012
We bought this book for my son after he grew out of the right age for "Two Homes" and he really liked it, even though his parents had never been married so he didn't understand what "divorce" was. We actually ended up pasting some words over to make it about him as opposed to the character in the story because he liked it so much.
I really like that it addresses the desire of children for their parents to live together in an honest way: "that probably won't happen". It also mentions that yes, sometimes the parents fight, but that the child doesn't have anything to do with it. It is hard for parents to walk the line between acknowledging that disagreements happen and inadvertently trying to sway the child to "their side". This gives the children and parents a way out of that predicament - "Yes we don't always get along. But it isn't because of you."
Would recommend for kids ages 4-8.
