Talking about divorce ISBN: 9781841388267
Edwards, Nicola
Published by Chrysalis Children's Books (Talking About series), 2003
Lots of colour photos of individual children feeling the effects of separation and divorce - such as Rachel feeling helpless because of her parents arguments, Ginny comforting her brother when he's had a nightmare, and Ruby feeling sick because her parents are so unhappy. Lots about talking to a trusted adult and about how divorce is never the child's fault. We see parents treating children as they should be treated, talking to them calmly and explaining. We also see the new families often created and meet new siblings. The emphasis here is on feelings and on the fact that there will be happy times again. An attractive information series.
