4.0 out of 5 stars Simple helpful book 22 Nov. 2006
By LizO - Published on
Format: Hardcover
We used this book to prepare our two year old son for a transition to part time daycare. The text is clear and concise, a few lines per page with illustrations. The illustrations show ethnic diversity. The author avoids stereotypes, for example; the mother works as a car salesperson while the father is a teacher and there are male and female daycare workers. The book takes a young girl through her day at daycare and ends with mommys and daddys return. There are tips for parents at the end of the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book 15 Oct. 2008

Format: Hardcover
This book was similar to my child's experience of child care so she enjoyed reading it over and over again. It helped open a dialogue about mom and dad working.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful Book 25 Aug. 2015
By Jadzia - Published on
Format: Hardcover
My daughter has been in daycare from the time she was 4 months old (she is currently 2). While she was happy there, we still would have a somewhat difficult time at drop off. She was always reserved and a would sometimes cry (she was always fine once she saw us leave). We found this book in the library and once we started reading this book to her, we saw a difference in her right away. She walked in by herself and was very confident. No tears. Sometimes when she is playing she repeats parts of the book "Mommy and daddy always come back..." I have found most Joanna Cole books to have this effect on her!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for working parents! 4 Dec. 2013

We read this book many times to our daughter when she was in daycare. It reassured her that we would always come home at the end of the day. She is now in middle school and she still remembers us reading this book to her.
