I found this little children's book helps to answer some hard questions---like, "Why did my mommy abandon me?" and, "Is she coming back?" I've worked in church settings with kids who have experienced parental abandonment---due to various problems, including divorce or drug situations. I would recommend this little book in half a second to any parent/grandparent/caregiver who is struggling to explain to their child why a parent left. Good information, too, for the parent on what to expect in terms of behavior from the child.

The book "Where is My Mommy" is geared towards children coping with a parent who has left and doesn't come back. Multiple areas that this can be used - foster care, parent incarcerated long term and so forth. Good read for adults who help child and the children themselves as they relate to the main character, Zack. Interventions are cleverly integrated into the book - can be used as bibliotherapy.

A really quick read (for adults)... This book would be great for foster parents to share with their foster children, until a book that is slightly redone for that audience appears on the scene. Written by mother and son MSW's, this team really knows how to speak to a child's fears in their language!

I bought this book for my 8 year old daughter. He struggles very much with her very strained relationship with her biological mother. I've had this book for a few years and read it with her often. It really breaks down in the simplest way to help her understand that it's not her fault and it ok to feel how ever she feels about it. This book was recommended to me by my cousin who is a liscensed psychologist. I was glad I bought. I would recommend it to any parent or guardian whos child or children struggle with an absent parent. buy this book & see for yourself. It is not an all end solution but will 100% aid you into explaining the harsh reality in very simple terns that your child can understand.

I teach a class called Rainbows for children in Elementary School who have lost a parent through death or divorce. "Where is my Mommy" will be a useful resource to have in my work with the children. Thank you for providing this outstanding addition to the lesson plan for Rainbows.

This book came in handy. My gchildren are going through a bad time because their mommie is having issues. This book helped them relate to other children that are going through the same thing.

It's give a child a little insight into that feeling of abandonment and that its not their fault. It's a good read for parents and children together so it can be discussed.
