Book Review-Two Homes by Claire Masurel

If you are looking for a book to help a child think about how having two homes this is a great place to start- Two Homes by Claire Masurel. 

This book offers a positive, practical look, from a child's perspective, at how having two homes.  In the book, Alex tells the reader what he has in each home and how it is the same or different.  The book concludes by reminding the reader that whether Alex is with his Mum or Dad, some important things always stays the same – Alex loves both parents and is loved by both parents.

This gently reassuring book aimed at younger children, focuses on what is gained rather than what is lost when parents’ divorce

This book can help children and parents embrace even the most difficult of changes and how to have open conversations with children about changes to living arrangements making it a firm favourite for me to suggest to parents we work with.
