Family One Family tWo
Family One Family Two is a simple book with a BIG HEART! This book engages a younger audience to learn about divorce and separation in a simple and loving way. The first of the series, Family One Family Two is a story about a little boy who has two families – one in the country and one in the city. We hope this book encourages young readers to learn about all different types of families as well as provides a sense of support and familiarity for those young leaders who share similar family trees.
The author, Erica Gibbons, is the founder of MommieMix, a fashion and lifestyle company. Erica was inspired to write this story to celebrate all the children who come from families who have been affected by separation and divorce. Erica lives with her husband and three children and is passionate about her family, fashion and dance. The illustrator, Kate Maruskin, is a long-time friend of the author. Her colorful hand painted illustrations tell a story within a story – for children and parents alike. Kate is an entrepreneur, abstract artist, and avid gardener living in Boston's historic South End.
