This book really helped my young granddaughter understand a change in her family circumstances. She seemed glad to know her own situation was written about in a book. I truly believe it "validated" her experiences, something along the lines of "when you are only 3 years old, if it is in a book, it must be a real thing in the world that other people know about too." Highly recommended if your young ones are struggling to understand a family split.
Great book. Bought this for my 4 year old to help him understand that even though his dad and I live in separate houses that it doesn't mean we don't love him. We've been separated since he was a baby but recently it's started to worry him. He really enjoyed this book and was happy talking about our different homes, I would highly recommend.
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.
Fantastic book for our three year old grand daughter whose parents have recently separated. It has really helped her to understand living in two different houses with one parent at a time. She frequently asks for it to be read for her bedtime story. For the younger child dealing with a change in living situation it is really good. Highly recommend.
I bought this for my 4year old daughter as her father and I are separated. She asks questions about why we dont live together and I thought it might help normalise the situation. It seemed to work, she commented throughout the story 'oh that's like me' many times and was pleased she could relate to it so it did what I wanted it to do.
I think that this is the best book on divorce and separation for Under 5s. Very simple text and an excellent book for parents to read to their children if they are going through this process. Suitable for 18 months and upwards
