Dad and Pop
by Kelly Bennett

Kelly tells about her life with two loving fathers: Dad who was there when she was born and Pop who her mother married after the divorce. Each of them is very different in many ways, but they are both the same in one very important way. Can you guess what that is? Yes, they both love her!

In times when divorce takes families apart, this book celebrates the times when it brings them together to provide different kinds of love to a girl who enjoys having the best Dad and Pop.

This is a book that should be in the home of every divorced couple with children.
