My beautiful, 3 year old granddaughter came to us by way of an unplanned, teenage pregnancy. This baby's daddy and mommy chose not to marry. As this child is growing and attending church school, she is seeing parents that live together and we know she is confused and saddened by this. I found this book at the library and will be buying it at B&N shortly. As I keep her, when mommy's at work or college, I was the first to read it to her. She actually got excited while I was reading it to her. She even explained the book to me, near it's end. Many, many thanks to this author, Ms. Masurel for helping our baby understand she is not alone in her situation. Please, please keep them coming.

I think this book is simple yet very engaging for both the parent and the child. The images and words are very easy to understand, kids can easily relate to them. The message is also very simple but crucial for this particular family condition.

A friend of my nephew is going through a situation like the book: recently split couple, and a little girl trying to make some sense of it. I didn't read the book, but the mom did, and thanked me very much for giving it to them. She was pretty sure it would help the little girl get though some rough times. The story is about a girl whose family has split. She now has 2 homes with all the stuff that's usually in a home: pets, beds, etc. It sort of celebrates the fact that she is loved by 2 parents and that she has 2 homes. Reading about another child who is going through a similar situation makes the child who reads it feel like he/she is not the only one in the world.
