Nancy’s Story


Free Book for Kids of Divorce

Divorce can be painful and confusing for kids. If your family (or a family you know) is experiencing a divorce, we encourage you to talk early and often to your kids. To help, we want to offer you a free book.

We’ve researched the best books available for preschoolers, elementary students, and middle and high school students, and thanks to the Harting family, we’ve purchased them for you.
