Summary: A sensitive and helpful message book about a young child trying to come to terms with his parents' divorce. Whilst this is effective in delving deeper into the child's thoughts, I could not help but feel that it reduced the impact of the reading, as the book felt too long and drawn out. Kes was voted by the Independent as one of the TOP TEN children's authors and he is the author of the award-winning Eat Your Peas and winner of the Red House Children's Book Award. I really enjoyed this book as it follows the tale of a little boy who’s parents have/ are in the process of getting a divorce.

This book is written as a poem and tells the story of a little boy whos parents are getting divorced. If you require any changes to this format please indicate in 'Any comments or special requirements' box at checkout. The illustrations were very detailed and used warm toned colours which was quite effective in making me feel comforted whilst reading it. Written in a continuous prose, the story feels like a real steam of consciousness, with all the worries spilling out of the child.The heartwarming ending of the realisation that he will still be loved equally by both of his parents, even if they are separated. This book would be a good one to use if a child in your class was experiencing family issues in relation to their parents splitting up as it explains how to view the situation more positively instead of feeing down about it. Der kleine Junge in diesem Buch hat ein großes Problem: Seine Eltern sind nicht mehr heile, sie wollen sich trennen und daher braucht er dringend Elternkleber aus dem Bastelladen.

It offers a slightly different approach, but the core theme is exactly as you'd expect, and rightly so. Its about him understanding that sometimes things are out of his control and instead of him blaming himself and trying to fix it, he instead accepts it even if it does still hurt. Divorce is a tricky time for children, and the message is always the same: it's not you and mum and dad will always love you. Would be a good book to use in a PSHE lesson or if children in the class have parents going through divorce. He explains to the reader that although his parents are apart they will always love him, and if they could have resolved their differences they would have done it by now.I am glad that the parents talked to him, that the parents made time to make sure he was fine, and that they explained everything to him.

Even if a child has been raised by a single parent, their parents split before they were born for example, they could still benefit from a book like this. On its own terms, it's an ideal book, but it's not a picture book for general reading - not that it aims to be. Told from the perspective of the boy allows the reader to step into his shoes and experience the emotions he is feeling and empathise with him. In spite of his initial apprehension, Gray said that he wanted to provide a view of divorce (from a child's perspective), that was not only just, but one that lent itself to honesty and integrity.A powerful poem which follows a boy who’s parents are getting divorced and feels like he is to blame and struggling to come to terms with it. Every Second Friday by Kiri Lightfoot and Ben Galbraith is another message book about divorce, this time dealing with children getting used to having two different homes. Wonderful job on showing how a divorce will feel for a kid, like his world, like his everything is also broken apart. The love a parent has for a child is unconditional; Complete and absolute, and not dependent on any terms or conditions.

If you are concerned about the health and wellbeing of yourself or children in your care, you should always consult an appropriate healthcare professional.His method for this isn't the usual response though: he looks for glue to stick his mum and dad together.
