I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver, at TheCommentary.ca.

There’s a new children’s book out now that shines a light and provides much needed context on something that’s not often talked about, and it’s the role of children when parents divorce. The author of this new book joins me now. Fiona McGlynn has authored i and the Great Divide. I’ll get her to tell us about ‘i,’ as it represents a child, whose parents ‘T’ and ‘N,’ separate. We’ll talk about the book, how it came about, who should read it, as well as what it might do for readers need they be children or their parents. It’s a great way to start the conversation with young people on divorce, and what that can evolve into. Fiona McGlynn wrote this book, which is illustrated by Robin Urquhart. For more information on the book visit www.iandthegreatdivide.com. You can buy the book today from Amazon.com. This book is the first in the Love Letters series, which I’ll get Fiona to tell us about. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Fiona McGlynn; Ms. McGlynn, good morning.
