When a young boy's parents divorce, he thinks it's because of the chocolate pudding he and his brother smeared all over the wall. With this gentle story, young children can begin to understand that divorce is about grown-up problems, while getting comforting answers to the most pressing questions.
Readers learn about divorce, and receive age-appropriate explanations of what is happening regarding such issues as single-parent homes and joint custody. The story emphasizes the need for communication between parent and child and includes a Note to Parents by psychologist and author Jane Annunziata, PsyD.
