This book is a short picture book about parents who have decided to separate. It addresses the love lost between the parents and a child’s attempt to “stick” them back together with “parent glue”. This rhyming story delivers a powerful and optimistic message and reinforces the lesson that despite the parents not loving each other anymore, they will always love their child. The benefit of this book is that it doesn’t attempt to address the full scope of issues children may experience during divorce. It focuses solely on love lost between the parents, how it isn’t the fault or result of anything the child has done and there is nothing that the child can do to fix it.
This is a brilliant book for young children ages 2-10 and appropriate throughout the entire divorce process.
