According to the Times Union, there is a new book that was released just in time for the holidays called. “Divorce: What about ME?” While this may not be on very many wish lists, it is something that can definitely assist a young mind with the questions that they may have.

Through the divorce process, the emotions can run high between both parents and even among other members of the family. Where the children are used to seeing a certain harmony and accord, there may not be very much harmony left. Children of all ages tend to internalize the problem going on with the parents and they may even feel as if the divorce is their fault.

There is no easy way to explain to a young child child why mommy and daddy are not going to be together anymore. This is where this book comes in. Children love rhyming tales and this book meets that standard. The author recommends this for children between the ages of three and nine.

The author draws inspiration from her own experiences as the product of a divorced household. She remembers how she was feeling as her parents were divorced and wants to give both the children and their parents hope for a brighter future.
