About the Book

Dinosaurs Divorce Will Help you Understand: * Divorce Words and What They Mean * Why Parents Divorce * What About You? * After the Divorce * Living with One Parent * Visiting Your Parent * Having Two Homes * Celebrating Holidays and Special Occasions * Telling Your Friends * Meeting Parents’ New Friends * Living with Stepparents * Having Stepsisters and Stepbrothers.

Friendly dinosaurs in the throes difficult divorce situations reassure readers in similar straits that everything will be all right. Ages 4-8.

Grade 1-3 Children familiar with the Browns’ Dinosaurs Beware (Atlantic, 1983) and Marc Brown’s “Arthur” books (Atlantic) will delight in this new foray into an area of deep concern for the youngest readers. Sympathetic to the full range of feelings that divorce produces, the authors use evocative cartoon dinosaur characters to convey their message. Chapters address such concerns as why parents divorce, what will happen to “me,” where will holidays be celebrated, living in two homes, etc. Expressively illustrated with accompanying succinct text, this upbeat, straightforward treatment of a potentially confusing, traumatic childhood experience is comprehensive. Prediction: this will become a real “security blanket” for those young readers in need. Mary Lou Budd, Milford S. Elementary School, Milford, Ohio.
