Dr. Ricci has done it again! The CoParenting Toolkit will likely become the resource manual for co-parents, their attorneys, and mediators trying to navigate the complexities of coparenting in today's world. The practical recommendations and hints for success are worth the price of the book. The vignettes help parents know there are others who have similar, yet solvable problems. Kids' Turn is pleased to recommend this to families enrolled in our services.

Best I have seen in this kind of book! Isolina Ricci has managed to get more useful and practical information in fewer pages than any other author on this topic. It's actually fun to read. The CoParenting Toolkit is easy on the eye, and the layout allows readers to digest material rapidly. This book is a fit for a high school level reader or a professor in psychology—and that is hard to accomplish. I am looking forward to distributing this book to my colleagues in the family court and parent education.
