A dear friend of mine suggested I read this enchanting book. A delightful, sensitively written story about a separated family from a child’s point of view, capturing all the emotions a young person can feel. The story runs from the initial trauma through to a happy resolution something a young person in a similar situation would wish for. Beautiful words and pictures. Robin O’Donoghue, London
This book handles in an interesting and thoughtful way a subject impossibly difficult for a small child. With lovely images it presents a child's reaction and treats the subject in a story that is gentle, reassuring and interesting.
This is a beautiful and simple children’s book about a subject that can be hard to talk about. This book is perfect for talking to your children about new romantic partners after divorce. It is comforting and my 5-year-old son really enjoyed it.
This book is so accessible...it gently normalizes parents' new partners. Reading this book over and over has given my 6 year-old and I shared language for his experience with his dad's new girlfriend and my boyfriend. My teens have also read it to him and it was so helpful for them as well! Our whole family is grateful for this thoughtful story and it's warm, inviting artwork. I recommend this to my friends, family, and clients who want to support their children's adjustment to their parents' changing relationships. This book is a delightful resource... I hope the author continues to create books like these!
Ms. Tamar Burris has written a poignant, helpful book for children whose parents are divorced. Ms. Burris' message to children is positive and uplifting, and the illustrations by Mousam Banerjee are wonderful. This is an excellent book for divorced children of all ages and for their parents.
This book was recommend to me for my child my my MFP Therapist. It is perfect and to the point. This book made my child feel better the 1st time we read it and my child still asks for me to read it about once a week. Very straightforward and to the point but from a child's view. Super engaging characters and Illustrations. Can not reccomend it enough.
I love this book because it gives young kids the permission to express their feelings that they are afraid to even feel, much less show!. As a Family Therapist, I worked with many young families going through divorce and beginning to have new adults seeing their moms or dads. Even if the parents do everything right in these situations, it’s HARD for kids to like what’s happening. So, to see Little Fox express that he was sad and angry, and nervous, and perhaps jealous and CRYING all the way to meet the new person-- Tamar is RIGHT ON for young kids who are afraid they will lose their parents love and affection. I hope to see more books from this author!!! Susan B.
As someone who grew up with divorced parents and step-parents, I love this book for the way it supports a child processing divorce. The story honors the child's mixed emotions, and presents an empowering concept of the new family "team." For a children's book, it's also just as helpful for the parents and guardians! It has lovely illustrations that feel warm and comforting. The layout is very easy to read, and the print and size feel great in hand. Perfect book for any family or friend experiencing divorce.
I am going through a new relationship with children. This book has made it much easier to navigate. My kids really responded to the message and characters of the book. I would definitely recommend this to a fellow divorced parent or a child physiologist.
