EVERYTHING CHANGES (illustrated by Åsa Gilland, Little Tiger Press)
A sensitively-told story that addresses the tricky subject of divorce with care and understanding, from Clare Helen Welsh and Åsa Gilland.
Laughing and playing together as a family on the beach, it seems the happy, warm days of summer will never end. Then, everything changes. Mummy and Daddy say they can’t live together anymore, and sad, worried feelings begin to emerge – It’s not fair! Was it all my fault? But, as time passes and the seasons change, it becomes clearer that hard times won’t always be quite so hard . . .
A lyrical book about the difficult emotions a child can feel when their parents break up, with an optimistic message of hope and resilience.
