Description

'Hey! I think you should know that there is nothing your parents are more proud of... than YOU!'

This simple graphic story helps children whose parents are separating to feel better. The book says why some parents have to live in different places, reminds the child how special they are to both parents, and reassures them that both parents will keep looking after them, and love them just as before.

Getting to the heart of what children need to hear in what can be a confusing time, the story lets your child know that they are loved and safe, and that this will not change. Ideal for children aged 3-7.

Reviews

'A difficult subject sensitively handled. Chandler uses gentle humour to show that change doesn't have to be feared.'
- David O’Connell, author of 'Jampires' and 'When I'm a Monster Like You, Dad!’

'A sweet and thoughtful picture book that helps children to deal with their family separating.'
- Peter Bunzl, author of 'Cogheart’ and ‘ Moonlocket’

'In this straightforward and reassuring resource, British comics creator Chandler addresses children directly, underscoring the consistence of parental love amid separation or divorce. The artwork features a family of three jellybean-shaped, candy-colored creatures. The parents are shown arguing and sitting apart from each other on the sofa: 'They realized that if they stayed living in the same place, things would get very unhappy for everyone.' Though separate homes may seem scary or sad, Chandler maintains that both parents will 'see you lots' and 'take you to fun places,' making the book best suited to families where those statements are true. The characters' lack of gender or ethnicity allows them to speak to a broad audience. Ages 3-7. (Oct.)'
