Divorce isn't easy, but it helps when you have a friend like Fred. Told from the point of view of a young child whose parents are divorced, this story follows the story of a girl and her dog, Fred, as they go from one parent's house to the other's. With Fred, she has a sense of continuity and stability. Through simple text and childlike language, this story expresses and addresses a child's concerns, highlights the friendship between child and pet, presents a common ground for the parents, and resolves conflict in a positive way. Tricia Tusa's charming and whimsical artwork adds a light, happy feel to this poignant--but not overly sentimental--story. Recommended for ages 6 and up.
