⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This was a beautiful book dealing with a difficult topic: when children’s parents separate, and how children are affected by it. It focused on the child’s point of view, and the questions or concerns they may feel when their parents are separating. It covered huge feelings that children may feel, such as abandonment, feeling it was their fault, and fear about where to live. There were prompts to ask the children how they felt at certain points in the book, and an exercise that could be completed at the end, along with more resources for children and parents. 

I would highly recommend this book for any child, not just those that are going through their parents separating. This book explained in such accurate detail the trials and tribulations a child may go through when their family is separating. Having any child read this will bring empathy to those who are experiencing a separation. The illustrations were beautiful as well. Each page depicted a different family going through various phases of separation. It was inclusive and showed children that any family can experience this. Overall, this book was beautifully done and I hope more people read it.
