Anastasia Higginbotham w/ Ben Karlin, Abraham Higginbotham, Peter Paige & Michaela Watkins presents Divorce Is the Worst ( Ordinary Terrible Things )
Kids are told, "It’s for the best"--and one day, it may be. But right now, divorce is the "worst." With honesty and humor, Anastasia Higginbotham beautifully conveys the challenge of staying whole when your entire world, and the people in it, split apart. Exceptional in its child-centered portrayal, "Divorce Is the Worst" is an invaluable tool for families, therapeutic professionals, and divorce mediators struggling to address this common and complex experience. Divorce Is the Worst is the first book in a series of feminist children's books, Ordinary Terrible Things, which deals with common childhood crises and how children themselves find their own way to cope and grow. (Feminist Press)
"How can you not love a children's author who sees so clearly from her reader's point of view?"--Julie Bowen, actress, "Modern Family"
"This book provides, through honest language and evocative imagery, a uniquely realistic view of how children experience divorce. While neither softening or white-washing this difficult topic, Higginbotham offers an ultimately comforting message to parents and children experiencing separation and divorce."--Lisa Spiegel, LMHC, "Soho Parenting"
