Brought this home for my almost 4-year-old daughter and was deeply disappointed by the content.

While it's great the book acknowledges the sadness of divorce from a child's perspective, it is oppressively negative. Like, completely doom and gloom. The author overlooks the fact that for many families, divorce is the start of a much better life for all involved. It's a hard, sad thing, but paves the way for happier days ahead.

This is the best book I've read about one of the worst topics in the world. Highly recommended for kids dealing with divorcing parents.
