Not just for single parents.
This is the best book I have ever read to remind all parents that no matter how angry we get at our partners and most likely for good reason we must remember that children don't see things that way. Children love both parents perfectly and forever, no matter what. It's important for us to remember our own childhoods when our parents were arguing or having problems. We never knew who was right or wrong. Even if we did, it didn't change the way we felt about either of them. We only saw two people we loved with all our hearts. This book helps kids deal with disappointing parents and helps the parent who is left behind to pick up the pieces. It is a great tool when these things happen. It also helps single parents when the other parent doesn't show up when they are supposed to. Single parents and households with two parents alike should buy this book. It enlightens us to the world as our children see it. I loved it and will read it to my children over and over. I live in a household with two parents and it still applies here. I really admire the mother in this book. SHE IS MY NEW HERO.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This is a wonderful book about a subject that isn't usually talked about. The illustrations are very lush and the illustrator really captures the mood of the hopeful, yearning child.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
