3) Dinosaurs Divorce: A Guide for Changing Families by Marc Brown and Laurie Krasny Brown. "One of the things that I have noticed while implementing several Changing Family groups is that there is not a lot of information on how to talk to kids about what is actually happening in their family. I love this book because it very clearly and specifically recognizes and speaks to the different aspects of divorce and what might happen when parents get a divorce (step-families, etc.)"
This timely, reassuring picture book is the perfect resource to help young children and their families deal with the confusion, misconceptions, and anxieties apt to arise when divorce occurs. Dinosaurs Divorce by Marc Brown
