When we started this project back in July of 2013 Becky and I found it alarming that there were so few resources out there to help young children cope with their parent’s divorce. With that in mind enter Mr. Apple, Ms. Orange and our main character, Little Fruit. In our Book “Mommy and Daddy Troubles” Little Fruit learns:
- It is not his fault that parent’s separate, it’s a simple fact that parent’s, like fruit, don’t mix well;
- It is up to Mr. Apple and Ms. Orange to come up with a game plan to save the day and help Little Fruit fight uncertainty, fear and the general unknown caused by divorce;
In our book “Little Fruit Phone Home” (Available 2015) little fruit learns that he can express his feelings so his parents are there to listen and help! Little fruit also figures out that Mr. Apple and Ms. Orange continue to inform one another of his day to day activities and maintain their role as Mom and Dad.
