Nicely illustrated by Bryan Langdo, Was It The Chocolate Pudding?: A Story For Little Kids About Divorce by Sandra Levins is a picturebook story explaining the concept of divorce and joint custody to young children ages 2 to 6. Offering insight into divorce and growing up through in a thoroughly 'kid friendly' story of two young brothers whose mother and father are divorced, Was It The Chocolate Pudding? follows a six-year-old and his little brother as they try to understand why their parents no longer live together and why the boys shuttle back and forth between them. Featuring a light-hearted, easy-to-read, age-appropriate understanding of what happens in a divorce, Was It The Chocolate Pudding? is very highly recommended as an informative, entertaining, and a perfect vehicle by which a concerned parent can help their own child understand a divorce in their own family, thereby avoiding misunderstandings and self-blame on the part of a child trying to understand an adult process.

This book has been helpful in my work as a children's therapist. Frequently kids blame themselves for their parent's divorce and this book looks at that blame in a gentle child-like view. I also like that in this book the dad has residential custody...it is hard to find books with that point of view.

The unnamed narrator of this modern-day story of divorce frankly discuss how his life has changed since his Mommy moved out. According to the narrator, "divorce is the grown-up work for when mommies and daddies decide not to live together anymore." It's from this young, simplistic point of view that we learn about the confusion, frustration and sadness that comes with divorce. The narrator worries that it was hist fault his mommy and daddy got divorced, because they were troublemakers. The parents gently explain that its not their fault, and we learn of the changes that may happen with a divorce. The story is simplistic, focusing on adjusting to change and learning to cope, emphasizing that the children are not the cause of divorces. One sticking point is that the mother in the story is presented as the bad guy, starting the argument that ends the marriage, and this could be more confusing and frustrating. Parents should read this with their children aged 6 to 10.
