My Stick Family Helping Children Cope with Divorce by Natalie June Reilly, Brandi J. Pavese

Billy feels angry, confused, and sad. His parents don't live together anymore -- they have gotten a divorce. His deepest wish is for his mom, dad, and little brother Alec to live together as a family again. In this tender story, simply and charmingly illustrated, Billy learns that just because his parents live in separate homes, it doesn't mean that the strength and love of a family has been taken from him. A tool for parents, educators, and therapists, the book sends a comforting message to children of the resilience and constancy of love within the family, even after a marriage ends.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
