With the divorce rate as high as it is, most children will have a friend or relative with divorced parents and have questions, even if their own parents are not divorced. That is why I was thrilled to partner with the creators of the book This Love is Forever on this sponsored campaign post.
Divorce is never easy for any involved, but it can be particularly hard on kids who may not have the life experience to understand exactly what is happening. That is why author Mavis Prall Cohen wrote This Love is Forever. This book is written simply in kid language and does an excellent job of explaining that. although moms and dads may not want to be together anymore, they will always love their kids.
From the book’s website:
“I am the best part of the marriage you see,
The part that lives on is here, inside me.I’m made from the best of my dad and my mom.
And I know that their love for me always goes on.
Moms and dads don’t always stay together.
But parents and children love each other forever.”
These are the final words of this little book with a big message: This Love is Forever – A book for children of divorce and their parents.” Written by a mother in response to her young daughter’s question, “Why are we divorced?” and illustrated by that same daughter years later, this book will give comfort to the whole family.
The author’s daughter, Lizzie Prall, is the illustrator of the book and her drawings create a kid-like feeling that is sure to have children feeling right at home while reading. One of my favorite things about the book is that there are some blank pages in the back which give kids the room and freedom to connect with the book through their own words and drawings.
This Love is Forever is available on Amazon.
