You Make Your Parents Super Happy! A Book About Parents Separating

Richy K. Chandler. Jessica Kingsley, $13.95 (40p) ISBN 978-1-78592-414-9
In this straightforward and reassuring resource, British comics creator Chandler addresses children directly, underscoring the consistence of parental love amid separation or divorce. The artwork features a family of three jellybean-shaped, candy-colored creatures. The parents are shown arguing and sitting apart from each other on the sofa: “They realized that if they stayed living in the same place, things would get very unhappy for everyone.” Though separate homes may seem scary or sad, Chandler maintains that both parents will “see you lots” and “take you to fun places,” making the book best suited to families where those statements are true. The characters’ lack of gender or ethnicity allows them to speak to a broad audience. Ages 3–7. (Oct.)
