Harold Vance III (sensingplace) | 34 comments Hey all;

I’m wondering if anyone has some good recommendations for children’s literature with positive experiences with divorced or divorcing parents as a backdrop to the story. I’m not looking for how to guides, or what-to-do-when types of books, but rather something with a fun story first and foremost, and a positive experience of a family making it through a divorce, whether implicit or explicit, and coming out all the better on the other side?

The kids move into a house with their mom because the parents are getting a divorce. It's not a huge plot point, but it does factor in.
