Book Review- Mum and Dad Glue by Kes Gray
A child's book exploring a boy's attempts to find a pot of glue to stick his parent's marriage back together
This week I have review "Mum and Dad Glue" by Kes Gray. This is a well written and beautifully illustrated book for primary age children who may want to understand how they can help if their parent's are separating.
The book explores the common wish of a child to "glue" their parents back together and fix their broken relationship and how this is something that is not in their power. Most importantly the book explains the absolute love parents have for children, even if their love for each other has changed. Books that emphasis this and how children should not feel they can or should try and fix their parent's marriage, are fundamental for helping children to come to terms with the separation and manage the feelings and anxiety they may be experiencing.
A powerful, important message in this lovely book.
