To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this to help as my little one is suffering from separation anxiety when I leave him at Nursery. He is 16 months old now, and has been attending Nursery sporadically (due to illness) since he was 10 months old. The stopping and starting there was making it difficult for him to adjust, so I bought this book and pulled it out when he was in the mood for reading. He was reluctant at first due to the lack or interactive elements in the book (e.g. lift flaps etc) so I've had to find ways to make it a bit more of gripping read as he is still very young and doesn't yet have much language. After a while though, he was choosing this book from the pile and now likes to act out some of the text (big wave goodbye). I would recite the book from memory when dropping him off at Nursery and last week we made real progress where he waved goodbye to me, despite still crying. He is starting to understand that if I leave, I will always be back. I credit the book for that.
I ordered this for my preschooler with separation anxiety. This book has helped her so much, she even remembers to say "after a while crocodile" every time! Very practical story showing that sometimes kids cry but they are OK at school with friends and teachers and that parents always come back to pick them up.
The main character of the book is sad about being dropped off for school, and this book goes through some things she does to feel better. Reminder that it isn't for always, and parents always come back to get us. Liked that this was about a little girl being dropped off and picked up by her Daddy.
My only complaint is that I wish it was a mom dropping off at school, since that's how we do things, but other than that this book is great. My toddler loves it and waves byebye and we use all the phrases in this book during drop off. Will buy more in the series!
