Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joella Peterson
Family Matters: Plays about Family Changes is part of the "Get into Character" series. The book contains two illustrated plays. The first is about what happened when Brandon's dad moved out. The second play is about when Tanya's family has to downsize and move into a small apartment that prohibits pets and what happens to the family dog. The plays are just a small glimpse at what a couple of "family changes" could be—but they are not a complete representation of what kids who are dealing with these situations are going through. For example, Brandon never tells anyone what happened. When Josh, and later Josh's father, invites Brandon and Brandon's dad to a hockey game, Brandon first evades the question and then Brandon's mom has to tell Josh's dad what happened. Also, Brandon never has to meet the new step family. However, these plays are a good place to start a discussion about what Brandon and Tanya are going through and the book also includes some questions to "think it over." These plays are most beneficial when used as a starting point for a group discussion rather than stand-alone reading material. Reviewer: Joella Peterson
