When divorce happens, it happens to everyone in the family and kids are left with a lot of questions. This is a tough conversation to have, and some of the answers can hurt. This book is meant to help start an honest discussion with kids about what to expect when parents go their separate ways—written by a parent who has been there.

Ashley Simpo (she/her) is a writer, mother, and wellness advocate, writing about motherhood and civic issues through the lens of race, culture, and politics. She lives in New York City where she co-parents her son, Orion, and leads conversations about mothers and children.

A fun book but maybe a few too many pages

It was good, and really helpful for understanding divorce and differences in families. But at the end the kids said they kept thinking it would end soon but it kept going 😂 probably partly an issue with Theo age and interest level. But we’re grateful for the thoughtful explanation, it deserves the number of pages it got I think!

Thoughtful Conversation Starter

This book approached the topic of divorce in a sensitive way without talking down to children. It doesn't delve super deep into any of it (which I thought was perfect), but rather explains a basic overview of what divorce means and - in particular - what divorce for a child and gives space for the parent to continue the conversation when the book is done. Great for when you're ready to have this conversation, but are unsure of how to start.

Very helpful book about divorce

This book was great for my 8 year old daughter. I like that it has no pictures as other picture books I found seemed too childish for her age. She read it with me and asked questions as we read. I like that it gives some basic information but still remains positive about all of the changes going on and emphasizes that it’s okay to feel sad and angry but to talk about things together. She related very well to this book and I’m sure we will be reading it again and again as other situations come up.
