From the Series Shelley Rotner's Early Childhood Library
“For as long as I could remember, my family lived in our house and we always did things together. But now things seem different with Mom and Dad…” So begins a child’s first preception of tension in his home. Typically, he wonders if the problem is his fault and thinks about what he could do to make things right again. He feels fear because he does not know what is happening. And, at times, he feels angry. Shelley Rotner and Sheila Kelly offer a look into a troubled family life to reassure youngsters experiencing similar emotions that they are not alone.
