Susan Day, author and illustrator of Astro’s Adventures has kindly reviewed A Brand New Day. She enjoys telling a good story whether on paper or in person. Thank you Susan for taking the time to provide such an honest and encouraging review. You have managed to capture the very essence of this book and the purpose it was intended for!
“What a delightful story. Divorce and separation are never easy on a child but this book goes someway to demonstrate that living apart has its benefits.
The rhymes are gentle and easy to follow. This book will keep children of a wide age range entertained whether it is read to them or they read it themselves.
The illustrations are great and compliment the story well. They have a natural vitality and warmth which adds to the sentiment of the book.
I would recommend this book for anyone who has recently separated from their partner. I would also recommend it to couples who are still together because it will help children understand what their friends or family are going through.”
