    Originally published in Canada.I love the inclusion of the illustrations. Gratitude to illustrator Cindy Revell for acknowledging and honoring diverse individuals and families in her illustrations (notably featuring an LGBTQ couple and including grandparents as active participants in families' support systems).I also appreciate the concept of the series. Titled "Just Enough" it is a very appropriate way to think about talking with young children about difficult topics. They need "just enough" information to have their questions answered, to know that they are not to blame, and to know that they are loved. I will look into other titles from the series.

    Cindy Revell’s illustrations helps tell the story of why families change. Why Do Families Change was an extraordinary story that explained the many dynamics of families. Why Do Families Change is an important read.

    I think this book would be good for any child about to go through a divorce. This is a picture book but all elementary aged kids could benefit from it.

    Accessible, reassuring explanation of difficult concepts and situations.

    A book that is up-to-date in its terms of inclusion. More for children who are about to go through these changes rather than already having been through them. Though it does define a couple of things regarding separation and divorce that a child may ask about even after the changes have occurred.

    I think this book does a wonderful job of explaining divorce and separation at a level that can understood by young children. Since this is becoming more and more prevalent in our society it is important to address it in our classrooms. Talking about it at a young age can help students to become more familiar and comfortable with the topic. This story also makes it easy for children to relate if they are in a divorced family or a two parent home. I would recommend this book to parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and teachers of lower elementary school students.

    It was very good. This would be a good help to children going through or trying to better understand separation/divorce. It is not very wordy and also has some terms at the back that are defined at a younger level. I would have this in my library.

    This book is helpful to share with younger readers when a family is going through a divorce. The simple text explains what's happening so a child can understand. I like the emphasis on it never being the child's fault.
