I'm a teacher and I bought this book for my classroom library. This book is great to have to help students deal with their tough lives. A big hit in my classroom. UPDATED TO ADD: I had older students this year and wondered if the students who needed this book might find it babyish, but my 4th, 5th and 6th graders appreciated this book for the message it had. They liked knowing that there were enough other students dealing with the issue that a book had been created. I wish that there was another book similar to this that targets older elementary students.

My wife is a social worker and unfortunately for many children in foster care this is not an uncommon topic.

Great book for children going through this tough experience. I'm a trauma therapist and use it for my kids at work.

The author only used 22 pages to tell a story that felt like a lot of things were left untold. The hero of the story, a bunny named Sketch, witnesses his father's arrest. The rest tumbles out like a story told by a maiden aunt. It was good. But it could have been much better.

We most recently experienced a very close family member going to jail and being sentenced to prison time. The book brought out my sons deepest fears and pushed us in the right direction for healing. Every school social worker and therapist should have a copy.

Very well done. The boxed comments are good informatIon as is the back matter. A must for all libraries. Recommended for school libraries.

This is a really sweet and honest book for kids and I applaud the author for tackling this subject matter. To all the grown adults making horrible jokes about incarcerated parents in their "reviews" for this book, congratulations, you're no better than the bully who taunts the protagonist in this book by gleefully informing their classmates that his dad "got picked up by the cops last night." You're literally bullying little kids. Keep in mind that there may be children shopping on Amazon with a book allowance or a gift card, maybe looking for a self-help book that will aid them in their situation, and they really don't deserve to wade through shaming and ugly-minded reviews from adults who should know better.

Also, if you say you don't want your children to find this one on Amazon FreePlay, you might want to ask yourself why. It's certainly a book that merits further discussion between parent and child, but by reading it your child will surely become more empathetic toward his or her peers. If one in 43 American kids has really had a parent incarcerated at some point, that's one in every other class in a typical elementary school. You're doing your kids no favor by bubble-wrapping them and pretending nobody their age is facing this stuff. I bought this for my kids because they have people close to them and some friends with a parent who has been incarcerated, and kids do ask questions and deserve the truth.

Anyway, the book itself is very nicely written with a cast of anthropomorphic animals. The protagonist, "Sketch" Bailey, has two parents who live apart but seem to both be very involved in his life, and during a visit with his dad, he and his two younger siblings witness their father's arrest. This naturally frightens him, even leading him to question whether he might be in trouble as well, but a social worker stays with the children until their mother arrives. The nature of his father's crime is ambiguous, but Bailey's mother informs him that his father admitted he broke a law and will have to stay in jail for a while. Bailey acts out at school soon after, responding with anger (and an act of violence against inanimate objects) when one classmate calls him a "jailbird" and another tells everyone he witnessed his father's arrest, but he is helped by a guidance counselor who assembles a support group for children with incarcerated parents.

The ending page presents a real gut-punch, and it's beyond bittersweet yet realistic. Through Bailey's narration we learn that his dad will be in prison for six years, implying he'll likely be in his teens when his dad is released. He admits that he is still angry but he loves his dad and is working on forgiving him.

It's really commendable that this book never condemns the incarcerated parent but focuses on his good qualities. I wish I could say the same for the mean-spirited "reviews," but I digress. "Sketch" is understandably angry at his dad and unsure how to respond to him when he visits him in jail, but it's also implied that his mother believes in maintaining family ties between her children and their father.

Overall, I felt this was a great book that tackled some difficult stuff. Referring to a review below, it's probably too much to get into the morality of law and justice in a book for young children when they, at least right now, are probably just looking for answers as to why their parent was incarcerated. But this open-minded book could definitely serve as a springboard for parents and children to discuss laws, civil disobedience and other related topics.
This is a very accurate story book about what happen when dad goes to jail it's illustrations are good and the writing is sensitive and I am satisfied with my purchase.
