If you are a divorced parent with young children, your child(ren) need this book. Young children can have intense feelings, but they don't possess the words or the mental capacity to express how they feel. This can result in behavioral problems and regressive behavior. Reading this book to the child helps parents, caregivers, teachers and therapists talk with children about their feelings regarding the separation of their parents. It also gives adults more insight in the emotional world of the child. Children can identify with the main character, Nina, who experiences emotions and expresses thoughts they may recognize in themselves. It gives words to feelings and thoughts that they are too young to express. This has a therapeutic effect on children who are going through the turmoil of a divorce. Many parents have questions on how to approach their child regarding divorce-related issues. Many helpful tips are included to help parents deal with important issues.
