Grade 2-4-On the first page of this picture book, readers are introduced to Molly, Tom, Ali, and Gary. Throughout the book these four children explain their feelings about being part of a stepfamily and how they have dealt with various situations, such as getting along with stepsiblings and deciding what to call their stepparents. Many different emotions are explored, including anger, bitterness, loneliness, fear, confusion, and jealousy. Full-color photographs and colorful cartoon drawings complete with dialogue balloons, are included. Johnson offers a more realistic approach than Laurene Krasny Brown's Dinosaurs Divorce (Little, Brown, 1986), which portrays dinosaur children dealing with many of the aforementioned emotions. A good offering for school counselors or children of stepfamilies.
