Unfortunately divorce and children are connected and innocent children are affected. Dealing with divorce and its consequences can be challenging. Children often feel guilty about their parents divorce. They need reassurance that their parents will not abandon them and will always love them. There are many divorce books and there are many children’s books about divorce. The goal of this easy to understand rhyming kid’s book is to help children of divorced parents to realize and believe that it was not their fault for their parents divorcing.

"Divorce Stinks," is a child-friendly way to help kids understand more about the process of divorce from the child's perspective. The graphics are visually engaging and may help children and their families feel more comfortable talking about how it feels when parents separate and divorce.

Paul M. Kramer's children's book, Divorce Stinks, addresses a very complex subject with insight and compassion. It provides clear messages that the children are never to blame and that both parents still love them, despite the changes taking place in their lives. The book is beautifully illustrated and the messages all rhyme which makes it easier to read aloud or to oneself. Most importantly, it opens the door to conversations between parent and child which is so crucial before, during and long after the divorce.

I enjoyed reading through "Divorce Stinks" and believe it would be a great resource for parents hoping to explain the divorce process to children. Fathers will be happy to find that the book does not show a preference toward one parent or the other.

I really liked Mr. Kramer's book on divorce. It was very fair to both parents. I really liked the way that it addressed the children's fears and feelings.

"Divorce Stinks" would be a lovely resource for divorcing families.

"Divorce Stinks", a children's book written by Paul M. Kramer is a wonderful book. Children, especially young children, don't understand divorce and often think they did something wrong. Divorce is hard on children, but it is a reality of life. Paul, keep up the good work.
"Divorce Stinks" is great! I love the lesson and the illustrations.
