Reviews

Gr 1-4-Series titles that offer advice to children dealing with separation. Each book combines fictional letters and stories with an informational text. The letters reflect children's concerns and the responses, from older family members, provide comfort and suggestions. Death looks at the loss of a parent, a sibling, a grandparent, and a pet. Divorce moves quickly from a story dealing with a child's feelings about not celebrating with Dad on Christmas Day to issues of stepfamilies. This progression might add to the concerns of young readers just beginning to deal with a new family situation. In addition, the implication that everything gets resolved is too simplistic. Hospital is the most solid of the three titles. It discusses the fears associated with hospitalization and offers practical advice. It does not deal with life-threatening illnesses. Preparing and helping oneself while in the hospital are two of the strong sections. Each page includes at least one color photograph or illustration depicting a child of elementary age. These volumes will be best used as introductions and springboards to conversations, or in conjunction with other material.-Edith Ching, St. Albans School, Mt.
