Book Dads, November 22, 2009 (view all comments by Book Dads)
The little girl in this story sometimes lives with her mom, and sometimes lives with her dad. Things are different in her mom’s house and in her dad’s house, but wherever she goes, her dog Fred always stays with her. But soon Fred is causing trouble at both houses, and her neither parent wants Fred to stay with them. So it’s up to her to explain that, ”Fred doesn’t stay with either of you. Fred stays with me!”

This book deals with some challenging issues in a very subtle way. Though her family’s situation is clear, the words “divorce” or “separation” are never used. This book also emphasizes the importance of a child’s own feelings and their need for control in the midst of what can be a difficult situation, as well as the importance of working together as a family to solve problems. Finally, it shows commendable even-handedness in portraying both dad and mom equally and without bias to either parent. The brevity and simplicity of the text adds an additional emotional weight to the story and the illustrations – especially of Fred – are clever and engaging.
