Every night before bed, no matter where he is, one of his parents tucks him in and tells him, “God loves you, Justin, and so do I.” He realizes that God’s love stays the same, no matter what happens in his life.
There is a section at the end of the book called, “When a Child Is Facing His Parents’ Divorce,” that gives some guidelines for parents on how to handle this situation.
The illustrations by Cheri Bladholm, are extremely life-life, almost like photographs.
What I Like: Although it’s not easy to discuss the subject of divorce with children, especially when the parents are Christians, sometimes it is necessary. This book handles the subject in both a realistic and sensitive manner.
What I Dislike: Nothing.
Overall Rating: Excellent.
Age Appeal: The publisher suggests 4-8 as the age group for this book. Even though some youngsters in this age group have to deal with their parents divorcing, I think they’re a bit young for the way this book is written. I think a more appropriate age group would be 6-12.
