This is a good book for the younger child. It uses only the most general terms for divorce and steers clear of looking at fault - children are prone to blame themselves. Beware though, that this book takes a clear bias towards the type of divorce in which mom gets primary custody. Daddy bear seems to get weekend overnights, and even misses one of those. The story portrays the kid's party at mom's house as the big deal, and dad's party has the siblings sitting on the floor later. Dad's beware. Use this book as appropriate, but it "bear" in mind that it does not display 50/50 custody, and favors mom.

I bought this book in hopes to help my children, ages 3 and 1 understand what is happening to our family. All the other books I looked at either had too much detail or was for an older age group. This book helped my three year old understand that even though Mommy and Daddy don't live together anymore, we both still love him and our daughter as well, also that even though somethings have changed, a lot of things remain the same. It's a simple book that is easy to read. I change the characters to my own children and change the things in the book to reflect our lives. It's a great book for this terrible time. I wish there were more books for the very young as most of the time, to my understanding, divorce happens when children are less than 5.
