“A Brand New Day: A Banana Split Story, written by A.S. Chung and illustrated by Paula Bossio, addresses the lives of children of separation and divorce as they spend some days with their mothers and other days with their fathers. The main character of this story is a girl who is loved by her mother and father. She loves her days with each of them as she spends some days with her mum and some with her dad because they have separate homes. The girl shares what she enjoys doing with her parents. With her father, she enjoys cooking and camping, and on days with her mother she enjoys gardening, playing with her step-brother and having tea parties. The girl knows that she is loved by both her mother and father, and she loves them both and enjoys spending time with both.
A.S. Chung shares a story of a girl who has two homes in A Brand New Day: A Banana Split Story. This story is great as it will help children of separation and divorce learn that they are not alone in their family situation and also it can be reassuring for children to know that it is okay to enjoy both homes and not feel as if they have to pick a favorite home and/or parent. This book would be an excellent resource to use in a counseling group for elementary students in similar situations.”
