Wendy loves her father very much and enjoys doing many things with him. But one day he leaves--forever. Her parents are getting a divorce. Wendy is left with a deep sadness and no way to cope with it, so she turns to peanut butter and cheese sandwiches, which remind her of her dad. And her obsession begins. It will take a loving mother and a sweet little homeless dog named Peanut to help Wendy overcome her grief and finally begin to heal.
David D. Bernstein wrote Peanut for children coping with divorce and obsessive thoughts. Having worked with young people for more than twenty years, Bernstein has witnessed how these challenges can affect children on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. As someone who has personally experienced the benefits of having a pet, Bernstein decided to combine the two topics to create a wonderful picture book that is both funny and fun to read, serving as a wonderful tool for young readers.
