- Customer Reviews:
"A skillful, sensitive slice-of-life insight distinguishes this bibliotherapeutic approach to divorce. Readers will feel Katie's emotions during that everlasting first week until Daddy picks her up on Saturday for their weekend together…Both parents emphasize that a divorce is never a child's fault. Excellent for parent-child use or classroom discussion."―Booklist
"The sadness, guilt, and confusion typically felt by a child of divorce is honestly portrayed, but so is the unconditional love that both parents continue to feel for Katie."―School Library Journal
"The parents act as a team, telling their child that, no matter what happens in other families, this Daddy will always show up when he says he will. Sensitive watercolors enhance the various moods of the book, which is, if not original,reassuring."―Publishers Weekly

Excellent for parents/grandparents to read to younger children, and children from 7+ will read it for themselves and perhaps keep on coming back to it.
