Book Review Dear Mr. Henshaw

Dear Mr. Henshaw is a great book, but it deals with a subject that in the United States is not very controversial anymore.  How a kid deals and feels about divorce.

The book is a series of letters and diary entries that the main character writes to his favorite author, Mr. Henshaw who wrote a (fictional) book, 50 Ways to Amuse a Dog.

Leigh Botts, is a boy who at the beginning writes at a very low level and through the book we can see his progression in expressing himself through writing.

The book is very well done and I couldn't put it down, I HAD to read to the end.

But notwithstanding, I wouldn't recommend it to just anyone.  IF you have a child and you have gone through a divorce, then it would be beneficial for the child to read it.
OR, if you are thinking about getting a divorce and want to know the effects on your kids, then it would be good for you to read the book.

Here is a link that you can read it yourself.
