This time, the toddlers don’t want their mom or dad to leave. In a sweet and repetitive way, this picture book reinforces that parents “always come back,” The adults in this simple read aloud acknowledge their child’s feelings and respond supportively. As is true for the other books in this series, the section for adults at the end of the book is excellent. Highly recommended for all who say byes to their young children.
This is the second book that I have read in this series, which has the backing of the American Psychological Association. It is a simple read aloud/picture book. A little girl falls and her father helps her by acknowledging her fear and, at her pace, patching her up with a band-aid. This story will be reassuring to toddlers as it reminds them that boo-boos can be fixed. There is a very helpful section for parents at the back. An excellent choice for a home or day care library.
This read-aloud/picture book is published under the auspices of the American Psychological Association. It is cheerfully illustrated with a diverse group of toddlers who do not want to share. A calm and lovely teacher repeatedly intervenes to help by respecting the child who does not feel ready to part with something and by offering the other child an alternative. The repetition will be helpful for young readers and will remind parents of the need for patience when coping with young children. At the end of the book, there is a VERY helpful guide for parents. Believe it or not, there is even a little spoiler there that you will discover for yourself. Highly recommended for toddlers and their caregivers.
