Mom and Dad Don't Live Together Anymore
A new look for an enduring book about a difficult issue. Review of the first edition: "...poignant and easy to read." -School Library Journal Divorce is never easy, not for parents and especially not for children. More than 20 years ago, celebrated author Kathy Stinson wrote in a positive way about the confusion, insecurity and sorrow experienced by young children whose parents have separated. Since then, Mom and Dad Don't Live Together Anymore has brought comfort to countless families dealing with this difficult issue. This critically acclaimed best-seller, reprinted 15 times, now returns with fresh new illustrations and updated text. For the young girl of the story, splitting time between parents has its ups and downs. She likes the elevators and garbage chutes of mom's city apartment, but the horses near dad's country home are great, too. Not knowing where she'll be for holidays is hard. Even so, she is comforted knowing that each parent still provides the same love and caring --just not together anymore. Sensitively told and featuring reassuring illustrations, Mom and Dad Don't Live Together Anymore offers children a gentle entry into an upsetting subject.
