A new children’s book is on the market, and it is meant to help kids cope with the arrest of a parent.
This book assumes a few things:
First, that the child even knows the identity of his or her felonious father, or that the child isn’t e pluribus unum.
Second, that the child gives a rabbit’s arse that Daddy is locked up.
‘The Night Dad Went to Jail: What to Expect When Someone You Love Goes to Jail’ follows a young rabbit as his father is arrested at their house in front of the neighbors and sentenced to six years in prison.
It offers tips for dealing with the hardship of losing a parent for many years and an explanation of what to expect as a mother or father going through the legal process.
Sketch, a young rabbit, recounts his first-hand experience of witnessing his father’s arrest in their home and shares his lingering confusion.
A sequel is already in the works. It’s titled, “The Night Dad Dropped the Soap.”
