Children of separation and divorce often travel from one parent home to another. This book supports children in learning how to survive, and thrive, in two family homes. The story follows a boy, and a girl, as each transitions to the home of the other parent. Each child's "Backpack" becomes a place to find strategies to cope. ​Children will recognize common stressors, will see others struggling with uncomfortable moments. Each stressor is followed by strategies to calm, or to rev up (when needed). Based on a neurobiological model of calming (as seen in Dr. Bruce Perry's work), readers walk through ways to change uncomfortable feelings. Playful and encouraging examples help children deepen their sense of being capable of managing stressors. "I Notice" arrows draw attention to what is happening in the body, and the name of the emotion that goes along with those sensations.
