From the Canadian Children's Book Centre

Children of parents who drink too much alcohol are affected in many ways. They may experience anger, fear, confusion and guilt. They will want to know if it’s their fault, if their parent can get better and if one day they, too, will drink too much. This reassuring book, written by professionals, offers information in the form of a storybook about one family’s struggle. This book is a valuable resource for any adult working with a child in a similar situation.

HASH(0xa4190324) out of 5 stars Good story to read to children with alcoholic parents Dec 20 2014
By Capview - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Good story to read to children with alcoholic parents. A lot of the story had similar aspects to what children experience when they have parents with alcoholism. My ten year old related more than my 12 year old. I think the story is for younger children, not tweens.

HASH(0xa416418c) out of 5 stars Good Book Sept. 29 2011
By Yul - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I find it is a good book but for kids that are older that 8 or 9, maybe hard to read for youngers. What I didn't liked was the end, when the parent stop drinking. I think this is not the reallity; we face a huge problem when somebody drinks and what I looking for are tools for my children to understand and be strong.

What I liked is how the book pictures the problems and sadness that help kids to realize that they are not alone, they are other kids who badly live the same reality. it brakes with the isolation feeling.

Good luck...
HASH(0xa494d258) out of 5 stars Story of a girl with an alcoholic father. Focuses ... Feb. 22 2016
By Lissa Parker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Story of a girl with an alcoholic father. Focuses on her embarrassment when he is drunk at her birthday party. The father gets treatment at the end of the story (then gets sober again after a relapse) so this may not be a relatable book for kids whose parent has not gotten help. Appropriate for grades K-6.

The ending is happy. This is not always the case. It gives children hope where this is little to none for many children.
