More About Living with Mom and Living with Dad by Melanie Walsh
 
 
 
Overview
For young children who live in two homes, this bright, simple story with oversized flaps reassures young readers that there is love in each one.
Her parents don't live together anymore, so sometimes the child in this book lives with her mom and cat, and sometimes with Dad. Her bedroom looks a little different in each house, and she keeps some toys in one place and some in another. But her favorite toys she takes with her wherever she goes. In an inviting lift-the-flap format saturated with colorful illustrations, Melanie Walsh visits the changes in routine that are familiar to many children whose parents live apart, but whose love and involvement remain as constant as ever.

Walsh addresses divorce from a playful angle in this interactive story with smudgy, inviting pictures that resemble finger-painting. Large flaps compare and contrast the time a sandy-haired girl spends with each of her parents. A turn of a flap turns her yellow-walled bedroom at her mother’s house into her florally decorated bedroom at her father’s apartment. Her father takes her camping, her mom takes her to a farm, and when she is in a school play, both are sitting in the audience. The bright acrylics underscore the love in the girl’s life, as does an extended family photo album in the final pages. Ages 3–up. (June)
