Divorce for Kids

How Can I Deal with
My Parent’s Divorce

An alert reader of this site sent this along. I have always had a problem with picture books that attempt to explain situations that are beyond the grasp of adults, let alone children. We have featured many on this site and I have hard time endorsing anything. I will give this book points for trying. I also think authors have a near impossible task in front of them.

Helping Children Cope

The Right Book, the Right Time: Helping Children Cope
Grindler, Stratton, and McKenna
1997

Submitter: Although over 20 years old this book is not necessarily awful; it just needs some serious updating. What really caught me was the media in the back. This was just weeded from a rural public library system. We do weeding on a schedule year-round, but this year our main location went hard at the adult non-fiction section, and came across gems like this. Again, not awful in concept, just awfully out-of-date.
