I recently found out that my ex-husband remarried a couple of weeks ago. He didn't tell anyone including our son until after the wedding. To make matters more interesting (worse) our son has only met her twice. Once was less than a week before they got married and the other was once they were already married (but they still didn't tell him!). Our son is so confused and has been having nightmares of people or animals trying to kill him. I didn't know "why" he was having this happen but then I found out about the marriage. Our son also has higher level autism.

I was thinking of getting a book or two about blended families that our son could read (child's level) and that Dad and I could sit down and talk with him about the book and answer his questions. (If Dad will do this.) I would appreciate any thoughts/input from anyone. Any specific books?
