This month, I'd like to recommend Weekends with Max and his Dad, by Linda Urban, illustrated by Katie Kath.
Max's mom and dad have recently separated and he is getting used to going to his dad's new apartment and learning his dad's new neighborhood. The story is told as a progressing series of weekends, as Max experiences some uncomfortable times of adjustment but also lots of fun times of play with his dad, neighbors, and a sleepover friend. The author very deftly portrays all the characters, and the drawings complement the story very well.
Good for full day Primary as a read-aloud, and for all Lower Elementary ages.
