Before becoming an author of children's books, Sharon Dennis Wyeth went through many different career changes. Her first job after graduating from Radcliffe College was as a family counselor at a day-care center in New York City. She then went on to become an actress, producer, and playwright--and, at one time, owner of her own off-off-Broadway theater. She was also a writer for daytime television, a voice teacher, and a Public Speaking Consultant. She has been a children's book author since 1985.
Sharon Dennis Wyeth lives in Montclair, New Jersey, where she enjoys singing, hiking, cooking, and gardening.
Grade 2-4?This early chapter book thoughtfully explores the effects of divorce on a young girl. It begins in January, as Ginger and her mother leave the home they have shared with the child's father to stay with her maternal grandparents until school ends. The brief, episodic tale follows Ginger through the year. She spends the summer on her father's parents' farm. In the fall, she and her mother move to an apartment near their old home; dad settles in an apartment nearby. The upheaval in Ginger's life is lessened somewhat by her loving, interracial family. The child's emotions run a recognizable course from bewilderment to anger and sadness, to, finally, acceptance and optimism. These emotions are noted, but not drawn out or overstated. Ideally, this book should be shared and discussed with adults, but it stands on its own as a sensitive and insightful introduction to a difficult topic.?Marilyn Taniguchi, Santa Monica Public Library, CA
