Books like this can either be really iffy, but this one was great. It does an excellent job of showing what it's like from a child's point of view when a parent goes to jail. The book goes step by step through what happened from the police coming to pick up the father to going to visit him in prison. Feelings, confusion, and counseling are also explored. If you know a child who is dealing with this problem, this book could definitely help.
