A comforting story and intimate paintings reassure children that, in the face of divorce, there can be warmth and love.At Mommy’s house, Alex has a soft chair. At Daddy’s house, Alex has a rocking chair. In each home, Alex also has a special bedroom and lots of friends to play with. But whether Alex is with Mommy or with Daddy, one thing always stays the same — Alex is loved.Claire Masurel’s gently reassuring text focuses on what is gained instead of what is lost when parents divorce. Kady MacDonald Denton has sensitively created all the small details of two distinctly different homes, while firmly establishing Alex’s place in both of them. TWO HOMES will help children — and parents — embrace even the most difficult of changes with an open and optimistic heart.

This is a great book to read to small children after divorce/separation. It helps to show the child that the main character also has two homes and sometimes he's with mommy and sometimes he's with daddy, but no matter where he is, they both love him very very much. It has definitely been helping my 3 yr old after my recent separation. He asks to read it and when I tell him today he's going to Daddy's house, he says "Like in two homes!". It also helps solidify that mommy and daddy BOTH love him very much, and even though he has two homes, things don't really change that much. Cute, simple, easy to read and relate to.

Quick delivery.

It's very basic and unbiased. Which I love. I also love the simplicity that both parents love Alex no matter where he is. This is great for my (step)daughter who spends time with her mom in her mom's apartment (Like Alex!) and time with her dad in his house (Like Alex!) and loves both her parents and are loved by both parents (Like Alex!)

I only wish there were more books out there, unbiasedly comforting children from two homes. It's never "normal" for children with two families, but we can make it easier on them by reminding them they are loved which this book does so well.

This book does not mention divorce but explains that Mommy and Daddh both love you all the time. This book is perfect to just explain having two houses. Great for kids that went through their parent's divorce when they were infants or if their parents were never married.

This is a great book for a child whose parents are not together. The child character in the book is "Alex" with no gender specified. So both boys and girls can easily identify with the character. The book has a steady focus on "love" and that even though the child has 2 homes, 2 telephone numbers, 2 favorite chairs, etc, he/she is loved by both parents no matter what. I would highly recommend this book!

I baught this for my son. Obviously he is from a divorced family. This book is great he's only 2 right now so I'm sure he doesn't fully understand what I am reading to him. But I love it I will definitely be buying more books in this line. It's a simple read but he enjoys the pictures!

We love this book. It was and still remains very helpful to read to my children as we move through the divorce process. It helps them understand that they have two homes, two sets of everything, friends in each neighborhood and that everything is going to be OK. The fact that they will be loved and safe no matter what is covered as well.

Very good points in this book, I find its slightly too specific to be relatable to everyone however
This is a great book for small children who’s parents are getting a divorce. I’ve seen books help in so many situations. I’m the nanny and this book is great to reference when the boys are confused and have extreme emotions. Lots of tears around here about mom and Dad not in the same house from the 4-5 year old.
