Publisher Summary

Peter Mayle and Arthur Robins, the bestselling team that created Where Did I Come From?, combine their talents once again to tackle a subject that is as difficult for parents to explain as it is for children to understand.

In Why Are We Getting a Divorce?, Mayle and Robins focus on the emotional issues surrounding divorce in a down-to-earth, objective way. For instance, why people get married in the first place and what can go wrong; three misconceptions children have about divorce; how to help a child accept a new man or woman in a parent’s life; how to adjust to living with one parent and how to overcome the profound feelings of loss and hurt every child of divorced parents experiences.

Why Are We Getting a Divorce? is a book for the entire family. It helps parents understand some of their children’s concerns about divorce and offers children sympathy, reassurance and sound advice.

With their trademark blend of humor and sensitivity, Peter Mayle’s thoughtful text and Arthur Robins’s delightful illustrations will bring smiles to even the saddest faces.
