Max Meets Emma helps explain, through a Basset Hound’s eyes, how two families can blend into one new family. It is a wonderful story about new relationships, diversity and harmony. The illustrations are sure to capture any young reader’s attention.
An excellent source for parents, it will be beneficial for counselors and teachers as well. The book will encourage discussions and help children express their feelings about what is happening to them. Explaining that a stepdad can never replace a dad, but rather a new stepdad is a BONUS, helps children to understand that although things will be different, these changes can be positive and will add people to their lives who will love and support them.
