Sea and Sand was lovingly written as a read along book to help explain divorce to young children. The book tells the story of two turtles that meet, fall in love, get married, have children and then divorce. Using the overall premise that sometimes relationships just dont work the book helps children to understand that they will always be loved and cared for and that no matter what happens they remain at the centre of their parents universe.

About the Author:

Having lived through the process of divorce with two young children, Jonathan Lang decided to put his experiences to paper in the hopes of assisting others going though divorce. The book was written and illustrated by him, and edited by his ex-wife Georgie.

Review:

The first line of the story is: The first important thing to remember about turtles, is that there are no good turtles and no bad turtles...just turtles . That line sums up the approach that I wish everyone could take towards a separation, especially when there are children involved. Mommy s not the bad one, Daddy s not the bad one, nobody s the bad one. There are just people, working through this thing called life and love. --Catherine Jenkin

This book is a wonderful way to explain to young children that both their parents still love them more than anything even though they can t stay together, especially when they are committed to making it the least traumatic experience possible for their kids. Where a divorce is not so squeaky clean and amicable, I think reading this book could benefit a lot of grown-ups too. --Louisa Bouwer

This is a note from me to say a BIG THANK YOU for sharing your book with my 10year old son , Cheyenne read the book 2 weeks ago and said to me this is exactly what I am going through mum and by reading the Sea and the Sand I now clearly understand why you and dad cant live together anymore I now have 2 homes which I will be extremely happy in BOTH OF THEM and I am happy that both my parents are happy as well The message is so clear and simple for children to understand I honestly think parents who are divorced and have children could NOT EXPLAIN this better than the SEA AND THE SAND --Krishanta Masher

This book made me cry at the end. Whilst Timmy and Erin don t end up living their dreamt-of happily ever after, they do create a life based on love for their children. In the story, they see and accept each other s differences, understand why they can t be together (Timmy is a land turtle, whilst Erin is a sea turtle) and work out a plan for their children, where they have two homes, and are enveloped in love. Timmy and Erin work together to ensure that their turtle children understand that their mommy and daddy love them beyond words. --Louisa Bouwer
