It helped!Reviewed in Canada on 5 March 2020
I sent it to my 15 month old granddaughter across the country. My daughter said that it made the transition to daycare easier than the first 3 days had been.

great for a first explanation of good-byes before daycareReviewed in Canada on 25 August 2021
Great starter for little ones on how to say good bye, and the notion of leaving and then coming back at daycare. A plus is that it's a hard board book, so she can read it on her own without it ripping.
