No Matter Who We're With by Robert Vescio
No Matter Who We're With, thoughtfully written by Robert Vescio and charmingly illustrated by Cheri Scholten, describes family life from the perspective of two children whose parents no longer live together.
The children find joy, fun, love and a sense of security at Mum's house and at Dad's house, doing everyday things like cooking, gardening and listening to bedtime stories. And these everyday things are so special because the children are doing them with Mum and with Dad, at Mum's house and at Dad's house.
'We miss Mum when we're with Dad and we miss Dad when we're with Mum. But we still have fun and lots of love'.
And, really, fun and lots of love are what childhood should be all about, whatever the family circumstances.
No Matter Who We're With is a warm and reassuring picture book for children and an absolute must read for parents who 'live in different houses'.
