This children’s book was inspired by Dr. Dionna Hancock Johnson’s own experience with her half-sibling. At the age of 15, she was introduced to her half-brother and did not fully know how to accept him. Later she realized how important family cooperation is concerning half-siblings and step-siblings. Many times, children find it difficult to accept their half and step-siblings because he or she may have come through a parent’s separation, divorce, or possibly infidelity. Where Did My Half-Brother Come From? Will help many families learn how to make their children understand what it means to love half-siblings equally.
Children are constantly learning, growing, and developing. Part of that process includes questions that parents may sometimes find hard to answer. This is more than a book; it is a resource for families who want to teach their children deeper family core values about love, respect, and acceptance. Families will be drawn closer to one another and will develop their relationships through this book.
