Kids always feel sad and scared when parents are divorced. This easy reader shows children both parents still love Dinnah after their divorce. The sensitivity, emotion, and fear of the children are masterfully addressed.

After reading this book out-loud to my sister, I realized that this can be a tougher book for young adults who have experienced divorce in their own family. It tries to make the hardships of divorce into easier concepts for younger children to understand such as why dad is longer around all the time or having to be separated from one parents on some nights.

Very sweet reading. It is very hard for a little one to understand why daddy or mommy has to live in different houses. This situation should be explained to them in very easy words. Reassure them that they are not losing a parent. The message is that no matter where the parents live, they will always love their children and be very important of his or her life.

Extension:

Spelman, C. "Mama and daddy bear's divorce". (1998). Chicago: Albert Whitman & Company.

This book helped my children deal with my divorce from their father. They were so young, that I felt a book could help them understand their emotions and feelings. This book accomplished that well.

Un cuento súper tierno que puede ayudar a los niños a comprender que el amor de sus padres no se evapora después de un divorcio. ¡Recomendable!

Sadly, divorces are very common in this day and age, and for many children this needs to be explained to as easy as possible. This book tells the story of Dinah and her three favorite people-her mama, her daddy, and her big sister Ruth. One day, Dinah's parents tell her that they are getting divorced meaning that they will not be living together anymore. No matter what, her mama is always her mama, and her daddy is always her daddy. As the story continues, readers get to see Dinah's experience w ...more
