Enhanced by Denton’s sensitively drawn portrayals of the characters within well-imagined scenes of domestic life, this picture book will validate the experience of other two-household children, while intriguing those single-home families. Simple, yet profoundly satisfying.
The ink, watercolor, and gouache illustrations are comforting and warm….This book is clearly intended to help parents tell their children that they are still loved despite their living arrangements.

In this sweet, simple tale, Alex discovers all the positive things that come from living in different places with his mom and dad.
