After being in a small at-home daycare from 3 months old, my 3 year old had a really hard time with preschool drop-offs. I was surprised since she's so confident and independent, but had to recognize that a big and unfamiliar space with lots of new faces was really overwhelming! Her first week was tough on both of us. I ordered this book after a few days - when drop offs weren't getting any better - and it ended up making a significant difference. We read it at home over a weekend and then brought it into her classroom as a special present for other kiddos that might be feeling scared or upset. We read it a few more times together in the mornings when I dropped her off and she could barely even remember to say goodbye to me by the end of week two. Off she went with her friends, knowing that I would be back soon.
Great book! My toddler has been having separation anxiety at daycare drop off, and my husband usually drops her. This book has really helped, and I love that it's a dad. It's like they wrote this for my exact situation!
This has been yet another awesome book to add to our collection for our almost 3 year old! He was struggling with drop offs so we needed something to help with the transition. This book was perfect and gave a cute little saying that we use now too! Just had a super successful drop off with him at my moms house! Yay!
I love this whole serious of books! We first ordered "Nap Time" when our toddler was having a difficult time with naps. It worked like a charm! Then a few months later we started having difficult drop offs at school in the morning. I jumped online to see if there were more books like "Nap Time" and found the whole series! We bought them all! I love this book about "Bye Bye Time"! I read it to my son several times and then started using the same routine in the book for our drop offs. Within a week things were much better!
My daughter loves Verdick's books - this was purchased in advance of our first preschool day, it helped us instate the "see you later alligator after while crocodile" into our goodbye regimen, and my daughter really enjoys the book. I also like the parent "tips" section at the end of all the Verdick books. Naptime has become another staple in our house.
