Divorce Reading List For Kids

People often ask me if I can recommend books for their children to read when the family is going through a divorce.  There are many out there and lots of useless ones so, when I find good books, I keep track of them. For starters, here is a list of good books about divorce compiled by Dr. Melissa Perrin.

An Egg is an Egg by Nicki Weiss       (ages 2 to 6)

Two Homes by Claire Mazurel         (ages 2 to 6)

Mama and Papa Bear Are Divorced     by Cornelia Spelman      (ages 3 to 8)

My Parents Are Divorced Too by Jan Blackstone et al

Dear Mr. Henshaw by Beverly Cleary    (ages 7 – 12)

What Children Need to Know When Parents Get Divorced by William L. Coleman  For parents and kids to read together           

How It Feels When Parents Divorce     by Jill Krementz    (ages 7 – 17)

It’s Not Your Fault Koko Bear; A read-together book for parents and young children during divorce    by Vicky Lansky

What Can I Do?  A book for children of divorce  by Danielle Lowry  (ages 9 – 12)

If you are an early career clinician, a professor who teaches interviewing skills, or a clinical supervisor, you will find my newest book, “What Do I Say? The Therapist’s Guide To Answering Client’s Questions” (with C. Waehler, published by John Wiley, 2011) a  practical, useful addition to your library.   http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=what+do+i+say+edelstein
