Books To Support Single Parent Family (dad)


Recommended Posts

Hi there, i have 2 children that i currently mind. They have not had any contact with their mum for 2 years (one child is 2 and the other is 3 and a half). The Mum has just come on the scene again and i would like to be able to support the children and the dad with this situation. The youngest child calls me Mummy (I remind her of my name) and since seeing their mother for the first time this weekend the older child has started to call me mummy. I can understand how confused the children must be as my daughter calls me mummy. I would like to share some books with the children to help them understand their situation a)living with daddy b)meeting mum and getting to know her. Do any of you fabulous guys have ideas of books that i could use? I am also thinking of doing a storybook of their own (along the lines of a social story), thanks
