Ten-year-old Kamryn lives with his mom, step dad, his two little brothers, and his step sister. Kamryn is a little upset. Both his parents have remarried and he loves both his step mom and step dad. He officially has two moms and two dads and so he has to please another dad and another mom, apart from the ones he already has. Kamryn finds it overwhelming and he is sure that his friends will all laugh when they see him walking in with two sets of parents. His mother, Nicole, tells him his blended family is unique and comforts him by saying he is a prince and has two kingdoms to live in.
Kamryn’s Royal Blended Family by Kammie Elston and Cassandra Britt tackles the topic of parents getting divorced and remarried, and children going through the process of adjusting with their new set of parents. The authors handle the topic in a unique and interesting way, making it entertaining for young readers. The illustrations are charming and they give life to the characters and the story. I like the way the authors have coined the term 'blended family,' giving it a good and positive vibe which will make kids feel as if they are royalty. Often children from divorced families, having both their parents remarried, find it overwhelming adjusting to two sets of parents. Reading this story will remove all such doubts. The book will also help parents focus on the most important thing, that of loving the child.
