Monday, Wednesday, and Every Other Weekend
Feiwel & Friends, February 4, 2014
Sometimes finding a good book to share with your child is the best way to approach a difficult topic. In this case, Henry Cooper’s time is divided between parents because they are divorced. The author deals with the subject gently but directly.
Henry Cooper and his dog Pomegranate have two houses. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and every other weekend, they live with Mama in her new apartment, but on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and every other weekend, they live with Papa in his new house.
Henry and Pomegranate are happy as they dance with Mama and sing with Papa, but Henry knows that sometimes Pomegranate gets confused and just wants to go . . . home.
This gentle and accessible story about dealing with the many changes that come with divorce is beautifully brought to life by author Karen Stanton’s vivid and memorable illustrations.
