This book is meant to help kids understand why they don't live with their real parents. Today's children can be living with 2 mommies, 2 daddies , aunts, uncles, and grandparents. When there is a custody battle it can be very confusing and unsettling for children. My hope in writing this book is to help kids better understand what's going on. This is their life and no-one asks their opinion. Children ages 4-8 are very smart and curious. This book is aimed at this age range. They have a lot of questions and feelings. I hope this helps them to better understand what's going on in their lives.
