David Dickerman, author of Mom, Dad, and Everyone Else, has reviewed A Brand New Day. Like Pigeonhole Books, David writes children’s picture books about divorce with a positive spin. It is wonderful to be connected with likeminded authors with the goal of helping young children through this life challenge.
“I am so happy I had the opportunity to read this book! First and foremost, the art is beautiful. I really liked the character design and varied expressions of the characters enjoying themselves. It really does a lot to bring the characters to life with only limited color choices.
The book itself is very enjoyable. One thing that stood out to me is the seamless nature of the rhyming. It really works organically throughout the story. Most importantly though, I like how the book doesn’t directly address the divorce. It shows the reader that a child can still have a full life and positive relationship with parents even though they live apart. The reader must draw this conclusion, which makes it very powerful. Great read and important message!”
