4.0 out of 5 stars My daughter loves it 11 Dec 2010
A little cheesey and a shame it's in American English but my daughter loves it and it did the trick. You can tell a child something logically and they might not get it but the metaphor of story usually stikes a chord. Tugs at the heart strings of a mum sending her youngest child off to pre school.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very sweet! 2 Oct 2010
Bought this book to help my son transition when he went to nursery... to let him know that no matter where he is... mummy will love him all day long... and now he actually repeats those words as we are heading to nursery! Very sweet little book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice book to build confidence 12 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It is a bit American in style so if that would bother you then don't buy it.
It's easy to just ready "Mummy" instead of "Mommy" though.
This was a big hit with my three year old twins and I enjoyed reading it to them.
I think it's always helpful to tell children that you love them "all day long" even when they're away at preschool all day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and Relatable 15 Jan 2006
By Amazon LVR - Published on Amazon.com
This book was a great medium to reinforce the message to our son that we love him and are "with him" while he is at school. We also ordered Buddy Bear, My First Day at Preschool (DVD) and Blue Goes to School (book). Each were great! Good luck. The best advice we got was 1) make sure your kid knows you think his school is a great and that you want him to be there and 2) try dropping off and setting short goals: I will come back for snack (30 minutes) then leave again and come back for Yard...etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars delightful book to reassure new preschoolers/kindergarteners 28 Aug 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
A joyous book to help any child feel better about going off to preschool or kindergarten--for the first time or just for the new school year. Bright, colorful, uncluttered illustrations and smooth effective prose show us little Owen Pig's worries (with wonderful facial expressions) and how his mother is able to reassure him that he is loved even when she is not there. My own four year old asked for repeated readings and loved every page. Enthusiastically recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for kids starting preschool 10 Oct 2005
By Judy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is very appropriate for young children starting preschool. I wish I had read this to my daughter before she started school. I actually searched for this kind of book because she was having a bit of trouble adapting to the change. She likes this book except that the characters are pigs. I think she would have like real people instead. We purchased another book on going to nursery school with real people and she seems to prefer that one more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helped My Son So Much 1 Sep 2005
By Sue - Published on Amazon.com
I was looking for a book to read to my 3-year-old son to help him adjust to attending all day nursery school twice a week. Based on other customer reviews, I chose this one. This is just a sweet book where mommy is reminding her little one Owen that even though they are apart, while he is doing all his school activities - whether it be making a new friend or making a mistake - she is thinking about him and loving him throughout the day. The book ends with mommy picking up her child from school, and reading together at night. Now at our bedtime reading, my son says "I want to read about Owen". Also, I've used the book for other issues such as sleeping alone ("See? Owen sleeps in his bed all by himself.") - it has really helped! I highly recommend this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a precious story! 29 Jan 2003
By "themounces" - Published on Amazon.com
We stumbled upon this book on a rainy day trip to the bookstore. Being away from their parents is often hard on preschoolers and this book is an excellent resource to calm those fears. The activities that Owen experiences are great examples of a typical day at preschool/daycare, which builds familiarity. I especially love how this books bring up the fact that even when we make mistakes, we are still very lovable. What a treasure we have discovered in this book! This has quickly become a favorite!
