Stepparents

Written by Lizi Boyd

All over the world there are stories about stepmoms – and most of them are not too pleasant.  They are generally, wicked, mean and do all kinds of terrible things to their stepchildren. So Molly is a bit worried and upset when she’s going to visit her dad and his new wife for a summer vacation.  She’s sure the new mom will be mean and very ugly and perhaps she’ll even try to poison her!

You’ve probably guessed what happens next.  Molly’s step-mom is kind and caring but both have to go through a period of adjusting to each other.  During that vacation, Molly learns new things, gets closer to her dad and comes to love her stepmom in a way that doesn’t replace her own mom, by does replace the pain she felt when her parents divorced.

Told in a funny and very real manner, this book is great for addressing the stereotypes of stepparents and speaks to the merits of giving someone new in the family a chance before judging them.  A light-hearted and heart-warming “kids-eye-view” to a tough but important subject.
