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.
The book is alright as in story wise. It basically just lists what's in each parents home so the child can relate to having the same things but in 2 different houses. E.g Alex hangs his coat here (mummy's house) Alex hangs his coat there (daddy's house) The illustrations aren't very eye catching to draw the child in. Wish I'd made a photo book myself and write captions in telling 'our' story instead.
This book is listed as appropriate for 3-7 year olds, but in my opinion, it is best for 2-3 year olds. Each page has one or two very, very short sentences. There is no 'story' here and is reminiscent of my young child's board books in that way. My about-to-turn-4 twins did not show much interest in the book. One did say, upon hearing the title of the book, "we have two homes, too!" which is the reaction I'd like, but they haven't asked me to read it since. I wanted this book to help normalize their situation, and while it does do that, the book itself doesn't have enough draw for them to want to read it much.
It's not the fault of this book, but it's also heteronormative. I supposed that is appropriate for the majority of families, but I wish there were more gender neutral parents in the book so it could be used more readily by any type of family.
The only reason I gave it 3 stars is because I felt the book was very short and does not go into much detail about the child's emotion. It would probably be beneficial for a small child or an ELL student.
