Looking for an age appropriate, positive and relatable book to help you talk to your child about divorce? Two Houses Down is the story picture book you want

Typically, when we think about divorce and children, we think about parents having to explain their own divorce to their child. But what about talking to your child about divorce when their grandparent's divorce, or their aunts and/or uncles divorce, or even their friend's parents' divorce? With divorce rates still climbing, more and more parents are having to talk to their children about someone else's divorce, whether they want to or not. This story book will help you start the conversation with your young ones about divorce and separation.

The book has vividly colorful cartoon illustrations and simple text that aid in explaining the serious and even scary concepts of divorce and changing friendships, to young kids ages 6-8 (early elementary). The mother's answers to her daughter's questions about divorce and the ripple effects of divorce are realistic and appropriate, making this book a useful resource for this increasingly common issue. Importantly, the story clearly highlights that divorce is not the child's fault and that love of family is always, even if the family looks different. The story is positive and child centered The book does not include any of the "adult issues" of divorce.

After reading this book, your child will have a better understanding of divorce and will gain insight on having compassion, empathy and grace for their friend (or anyone) in this situation.
