Do you worry about talking to your kids about your divorce?

Most books that take you through the divorce process are from the perspective of the parents, but many never really address the process from the child's perspective. Our book, beautifully illustrated, is a magical story of spiritual wisdom and practical tools to help children through the divorce process by addressing many of your child's feelings that may lead to anxiety, sadness and depression. A 15 minute read that provides a safe space to start your divorce conversation with your child.

"Helping your child to gently handle the various divorce challenges with humor, and kindness, is the best gift I can give to the children of my clients."
-Jeanne M. Colombo, Esq., Author

“This children’s book, by lawyer and first-time children’s author, Jeanne Colombo, is a charming and engaging book. As a source of insights for children experiencing grief over their parents’ divorce, it punches far above its weight.

As a judge who has heard the stories of thousands of families whose children are processing their parents’ divorce, I can think of no better resource for parents and therapists to use to convey the insights found here to children of teen or pre-teen years. Ms. Colombo’s book empowers children to make the transition to separate households, enriched by each, and avoiding the pitfalls of choosing sides.”
-Honorable David G. Price
Supreme Court Matrimonial Justice, Toronto, Canada

"Barker Cane Land is a great, fast read! The wonderful illustrations reflect the words of wisdom of the magical Barker Canes, midway carnival prizes, which offer practical techniques on how to come out on the other side of divorce grief from the point of view of young people, like me."
-Justin W., Rochester NY

Barker Cane Land is a gift to children of divorcing parents. The lessons are imparted by magical and spiritual Barker Canes, the prizes from the old carnival midways. The Dog (Allegiance), the Horse (Glory), the Elephant (the Grand Presence), and all the rest are truly amazing. A Brilliant Surprise.
- Renee P, Naples FL

As a child who survived my parents' break up, I wish I had access to this magical book as a reference resource. This is a straightforward, but kind way, to impart wisdom on this difficult subject. There are very useful lessons on coping with stress, anxiety and loss. Quite helpful!
- Jessica S, Penfield, NY
