More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joella Peterson
The book When Daddy Hit Mommy, which is part of the series "Kids Have Troubles Too," has two main sections. The first section is a fictional story about a girl named Rose who helps her mother while waiting for her dad to come home. The trouble is that when Rose's dad usually comes home angry and when he is angry he is "scary." After Rose finds her mother in the kitchen amidst broken dishes and with a bloody face, Rose stays home from school and tells her mother's friend about the night before. The friend then helps the family pack so they can go to a shelter to find help. This story has few illustrations and quite a bit of text. Unless a kid is learning about domestic violence or has a particular interest in this subject matter, many might not finish it. The second half of the book has a more appealing format with bulleted paragraphs talking about the what's and why's of domestic violence. Although there are photographs, there are still quite a few pages that only have large paragraphs of text. There is also a list of further readings, questions for discussion, an index, and a list of internet resources.
