Book Review

I often write about illness and how painful that can be for children. There are other kinds of pain children go through and developing relationships can be one of those painful experiences.

Developing a relationship with a step-parent can be heart wrenching, difficult, and life changing. It can also be the best adult-child relationship some kids ever have. Author Kim Chatel has written a book describing just that... a girl and her relationship with her new step-father and what a wonderful experience that can be.
  • This story is heartwarming and shows that children can have wonderful relationships with good and kind step-parents. These relationships can help the child to develop new interests, hobbies, and self-confidence. This book has fabulous photos and will spark interest in photography for readers of all ages. There are even a few tips on starting photography as a new hobby.

I love the title of this book and the picture on the cover. Some of my best memories are of times when we didn't have to be anywhere or rush to do something. Those long, lazy days of summer when I could just settle down with a good book or sit outside and enjoy the smell of fresh cut grass or feel the warmth of the sun on my face. We need to learn how to do that again.

Thanks Terri,
Although I have not been a step parent I am married to one. Step parenting is tougher than anything else. Thanks for introducing this book.
