From playing in the snow to a rainy-day ride, to double-scoop treats and crash-landing in leaves, two can be the perfect number for creating life's memories. And two can definitely be enough for a warm family, full of the love, support, and comfort that every child needs.
This book would probably be considered an issue book, its audience being for children who have a single parent, whether that be from divorce, adoption, kinship care, or death. There isn't much to it, but the sentiment is important for little ones who may be struggling with the change in the family or for those that have noticed that they only have one parent while their friends have two. Even grandparents raising kids is addressed.Now, there are plenty of books our there that feature single parents (A Chair for My Mother, The Storm Whale, Lenny & Lucy), but having one that doesn't address a specific issue like divorce or death, gives it a wider audience. A nice issue book to add to a parent, teacher, or therapists to add to their collections.
