Subjects like death and divorce are not exactly my favorite topics for a children’s book, but I do get requests for them often enough. Do they magically heal? No, but maybe they are the beginning of dialogue and healing for the kids. That said, I doubt this book helps anyone.
This author hints at violence from Dad. Mom tells child that Dad left because he didn’t love her. Frankly, if these two parents are behaving this way, child probably is better off in foster care. I felt awful reading this book. Final blow for this book: this is written by the same author as our most famous post ever: Satan for Kids (part two, click here) and the equally awful book Drugs are Evil. I think these books could be marketed as a set of the most disturbing picture books ever.
