“A good book to have on hand to comfort first-day preschoolers or kindergarteners.” —Booklist
Do I have to go? Owen asks. Yes, says his mom. But she sends him off with more than just his lunch. She promises that no matter where he is and no matter what he's doing—whether Owen is making a new friend or spilling his juice—she'll love him all day long, from the moment they part until the moment Owen is back in her arms again.
Francesca Rusackas and Priscilla Burris's book is a reassuring picture book to share with nervous little ones. It shows how the enduring love of a parent stays with a child whether they are together or apart.
