About the Author

Claire Masurel is the author of numerous books for children, although this is her first for Walker Books. She wrote Two Homes after talking to a child who was upset after her parents' recent divorce. In order to comfort the girl, "I talked about her two homes, and all the many things she could do in them. It was a positive way of helping her accept the changes in her life, focusing not on what was missed, but on the abundance of good times - and love - that she would continue to share with her Mum and Dad." Kady MacDonald Denton is one of Canada's foremost illustrators and has won the General Governor Award. She lives with her family in Manitoba, Canada. About Two Homes, she says, "Alex talks about simple things like toothbrushes, bedrooms, and friends - and they are all special because they are part of the love Alex feels in both homes. I tried to show that love in the illustrations."

Reviews

PreS-Gr 1-Young Alex's parents are divorced, and he spends time with each of them. He has two rooms, two favorite chairs, two sets of friends, two of everything. He loves both of them no matter where he is, and they love him, no matter where they are. The ink, watercolor, and gouache illustrations are comforting and warm. There is no sign of the child missing one parent when he is with the other or questioning his situation, and he seems quite well adjusted. This book is clearly intended to help parents tell their children that they are still loved despite their living arrangements. For a different view of how children may feel about sharing two homes, look to Judith Caseley's Priscilla Twice (Greenwillow, 1995).-Holly Belli, Bergen County Cooperative Library System, West Caldwell, NJ Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

Any young reader who has experienced the separation or divorce of their parents will read this happily knowing that they are not alone. * Burnley Express *
