His method for this isn't the usual response though: he looks for glue to stick his mum and dad together. By creating this sense of emotion the book is ideal to create and sustain a dialogue with the child and also provides the child with the feelings that this is okay, and it is okay to question the events that are happening around them. The illustrations were very detailed and used warm toned colours which was quite effective in making me feel comforted whilst reading it.

Beautifully rhyming story that flows and in with really lovely language tackles the issue of parent separation. I think this would be a good book to offer children support who’s parents may be/ have split whilst giving other children a sense of empathy. If you require any changes to this format please indicate in 'Any comments or special requirements' box at checkout. It might be an obvious metaphor, but it perfectly captures the feelings that children might be having, without being melodramatic or scary. Divorce is an unhappy fact that affects many children's lives; parents who are divorcing will value this story that can be read to their children, its message one of comfort to help soothe and make them aware that their parents' separation is in no way their fault.The cracks on the page that follow the boy throughout the book reinforce the fact he feels his whole world is now broken and then when he realises everything might just be okay, those cracks disappear. The child's concept of sticking his parents back together with glue is so down to earth and truly places the reader into the mindset of a young person desperate for his mum and dad to stay together. It would be a great recommendation to send home, or to read in a smaller, comfortable group, so that children feel they can ask questions, share their response and feelings and talk through these in a trusting environment. Although I think this story focused on parent separation in a nice way, I did feel like the ending was a bit abrupt. Gray said himself that he was very cautious, and rather uncertain that he would be able to convey such a powerful subject matter accurately, and appropriately to his audience.

This book is written as a poem and is a lovely way to help children and make them aware of marriage break-ups between their parents and that there are ways of coping and that it will all be alright.Mum and Dad Glue is very much a message book, and is aimed squarely at young children in the exact same situation as the unnamed hero. I think that is a great way to help children see the metaphor of how sometimes when things are going wrong for us, the whole world can seem broken.
