The Incredible Shrinking Girl: A Divorce Story

The Incredible Shrinking Girl: A Divorce Story

by Julie Verner, PhD

A little girl grows smaller and smaller in response to her parents’ divorce in this picture book written for children whose parents are breaking up.

Penny can’t figure out why she is getting smaller and smaller. Her roller skates are too big. Her clothes no longer fit. And, she can no longer reach the kitchen sink or her desk at school! But, when a kind teacher notices something is wrong and shares her own experience of getting smaller, Penny discovers she is not alone, and that her parents’ divorce need not be her story.
