Two homes for David

When parents separate they have to negotiate the care of their children. The children's book Two homes for David (1995) illustrates a shared-care situation. It follows David as he experiences some unhappiness and uncertainty about the situation, showing how his parents deal with the transition from one house to another, and how David accepts the situation.
