I have told all my friends about this book. I have given it numerous parents. As an educator, this book provides a great basis for helping childrengo to school, or in any way be separated from their parents, while knowing that their safe and loved. It's part of a great series of books for children and their families.

What a precious story!! I purchased this to have for the little ones when they visit. I'm so glad I did. The message is so heartwarming. I was so excited after I read this book that I called my neice who is a school teacher (1st grade). She says she loves this book and at the beginning of each school year she reads the story to her students and the traces their hand on paper and sends it home with them to share with their parents. Isn't that sweet?

Most kids are afraid to go to school on the first day. This is a PERFECT story to ease their nerves. You can read to you kids, they can read for them selves, or the book can read itself. If you tap on some items ( or raccoons!) it will say its name and how the word. A wonderfully written classic.
