Sometimes family members just can't get along, and inevitably, there are marriages that don't work for whatever reason. This book for young readers shows how one family deals with divorce and separation as the main character describes what it's like living with each parent. For instance, there is a panda nightlight at Mom's and butterfly lights at Dad's, and Mom lives in a house while Dad lives at the top of an apartment building. The message that families can learn to cope even during changes is a healthy one, made even more pleasurable by the pages with flaps that lift so readers can see what life is like at the other parent's place. Many might find comfort in knowing that they aren't alone in having to live their lives in two different places.
