This book helps young children find out about and understand what's happening when their parents divorce or separate. It features eight case studies from children who have a range of issues from a girl who is angry with her parents to a boy who is worried about what will happen next. The stories help readers understand and empathise with characters, while also offering practical advice that readers can use in their everyday lives. The end of the book features a short playscript to act out and discuss. The book has engaging illustrations throughout.
In this series case studies combine with sensible, practical advice to help children aged 6+ find out what to do in difficult situations.
