How this book might help: For children whose parents are getting divorced
A little girl's parents tell her they are getting divorced, but she doesn't want to talk about it. She likens her reactions to different animals such as 'roaring loudly like a lion' so that everyone will think she is brave. The story gives a very positive focus by reassuring the child that none of this is her fault and that both her parents still, and always will, love her.
Worth Noting: Notes to parents at the back may well help parents understand their child's reactions.
