To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this book thinking it would have a story about divorce in it in a way that would make it easier for a child to understand. Instead there are short comic strips (one page) that talk about what it means and different consequences. This might be better for older children (8 years and above) as some of it seems too complex to be understood.
Really good book to help a child understand divorce and seperation and is great at explaining feelings and helping the child understand that’s it’s not their fault why the marriage broke down. My daughters teacher recommended it from the school.
Most of these books tend to be somewhat patronising or not quite addressing issues - this one is pretty good on both scores. Most importantly, this book allows a child to ask questions to the adult reading, so that the child wont feel guilt over such questions. So the book acts as a go between - often children are worried about upsetting either parent by asking questions. Aside from that, this is gently written, sensitive and manages to insert a teeny weeny bit of humour too - which after all, is helpful, given the gravity of such family situations. Wonderful.
Perfect for primary age children! This covers all sorts, from feelings and emotions to explaining legal terms in ways that are easy to understand. Love the cartoon illustrations and the reassuring tone.
This book went straight to the charity shop! Full of things about divorce that young kids do not need to know about ie. divorce courts and lawyers, lack of money after divorce, and was horrified at a cartoon drawing of dino Mum popping pills and alcohol to inform kids that their parent may try to hurt themselves!!!
Such a beautifully written book and very to use for parents, social workers, teachers and counsellor a when working with children. I was very impressed with the language used, very appropriate when discussing circumstances sensitively with children.
this is the best book ive come across to explain the issue of separation through divorce thats done in a very child centred and freindly way and answers all the questions a child may have... if your going to buy any book get this one it really is excellent
