Do you have any Advice - Books for Kids not Living with both Parents

Do you have any suggestions for read aloud for second graders in which there are kids who do not live with both their mom and dad, or just live with dad, or neither? I am trying to be sensitive to students who live without their mothers and every single picture book I see seems to have a mom and dad. :-)

Someone was kind enough to mention Mother for Choco to me which I hadn't heard of. It looks cute but says it's for 3-6 year olds. Has anyone read it? Do you think second graders would not think it's too "young" for them. The link to it on amazon is below if you'd like to see. She also mentioned maybe Patricia Palacco but wasn't sure which book(s). Let me know if you think of anything!
