Divorce can be a challenging and emotional time for everyone involved, especially for children. It’s important for parents to provide support and resources to help their children cope with the changes that come with divorce. One helpful resource can be books that are specifically written for children going through a divorce.
Here are ten books that we recommend to help children navigate the difficult emotions that can arise during and after a divorce:
