Dear DK Simoneau,

     My Mom and Dad are divorced and you reading that book made me feel good inside.  I wish I can go back and forth- but I have to wait a long time to see my Dad because he lives in another state.  He lives in California.

Love, John

Hi DK,

I just wanted to let you know that I gave the book I bought from you at the last CIPA meeting to my friend who is going through a divorce with her 3-year old son. It is now the ONLY book he wants to read and they read it multiple times each night before bed.

I knew it would be perfect because, as the child of divorced parents with joint custody, it told the story of my life from age 9-18. I wasn’t so sure it would be as meaningful for a 3-year old, but it most certainly is.

You really hit the nail on the head with your book. Nice work.

Elizabeth

Dear DK,

My son loved the book. I am also a psychotherapist and feel it is really well done from a professional standpoint as well. Furthermore, it helped me as a newly divorced mother to not feel so guilty!  Congratulations.
