One Princess, Two Castles is a catalyst that will help children understand that their parents will no longer be staying together, nor will they be living in one house all together again.

This illustrated picture book is about a child named Princess T whose parents are no longer staying together and therefore are moving into separate castles. Princess T learns a key phrase that is repeated throughout this story, "things will be different, but things will be good." Princess T learns that although it is okay for her heart to feel sad, it is perfectly okay for her heart to feel excited about spending time with each parent. She learns to look at the positives of spending time at each of her parent’s castles, and although time spent with the king and queen are different ...the one commonality is their love for her. Although the actual word divorce is not used in this story, the message is apparent.
