“They realised that if they stayed living in the same place, things would get very unhappy for everyone.”
A simple and comforting book for young children that helps explain the reasons parents decide to live apart. Focuses on the message that the child is loved above all else, to help ease worries and fears the experience may bring up.
Very simple, abstract characters and no gender specific pronouns allow this book to be used by a broad range of families. By focussing on how much the child is loved, and how both parents will still be around even though things will be different gives the book a positive tone, while explaining a difficult topic.
