Started with one book and bought almost this WHOLE series so far! Beautiful artwork. Gentle comforting messages that empower. Keep 'em coming Cornelia Maude Spelman and Kathy Parkinson, please! You are a wonderful partnership!
I got several books in this series for my 3 year old son to work through having 2 houses and missing mommy or daddy when he is not with us. He can't talk about his feelings much at this age, but it is so good for him to learn about the feelings, how they are normal, and okay, and good, and that there are things he can do when he feels them. I learn a lot from these books on how to help him and what to say to him too. He picks these books off of the shelf himself during reading time before bed too which is surprising to me, so I know they are speaking to him.
My 4 year old has really been struggling with separation anxiety lately. I purchased this book to try and ease the pain a little for her. It seems very basic and straight forward as an adult reading the story, but it somehow speaks to my daughter. She loves this book and requests to read it often. I'm not sure if is has helped to ease her anxiety at this point, but it does help her to talk about her feelings; which will hopefully ease the anxiety for her.
This book is perfect for my sensitive four year old who misses everyone and everything when at daycare or when at her dad’s for the weekend. The vocabulary and wording is age appropriate and helps her understand her feelings and provides ways to cope!
My little one requests this then huddles into the armpit for a bedtime story that hits a bit too close to home. We analyze every single scene - baby misses mommy but mommy at work. Baby misses daddy but daddy at work.
Great book and very age-appropriate around 2-4 years old for anyone who - as we do - has little ones in school, daycare, or simply has to be away for a bit.
