yay! thank you for doing this. i will add some if i think of any more . . .
i loved "the parent trap" as a kid (and still kind of do - both versions). i had no fantasies of my parents reuniting and i just thought it was a funny movie. however, i think it's probably really bad for kids who are struggling to accept their parents' divorce.
Not in the fiction catagory, but this book is great. Just quick and simple activities than don't even have to be sequential.
