Dinosaurs Divorce by Marc Brown and Laurene Krasny Brown. If you were a kid in the 80's and your well-meaning relatives were vaguely aware that you liked dinosaurs and books, you probably received a copy of either this or Dinosaurs Beware! I think they wrote a third, no less mystifying, book in this series.
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.)"
