I remember the first day of school for each of my children. How excited and scared they were. I wish I would have had this book for them way back when.
Now, I want this book for Carson and Courtney, while it is more about kindergarten, I think the lesson in this story applies to all situations where children are separated from their mom for a few hours or longer.
Hopefully soon I will be doing a review on this book, and give you some specifics on why I recommend this book for all you moms out there.
About The Pocket Mommy:
Saying goodbye to Mom at the kindergarten door can be tough. Samuel hates it and wishes he could have a tiny, pocket-sized mommy to carry around with him all day. His mom slips a pretend mommy into his pocket, and when she comes to life, Samuel is delighted . .. at first. But he soon discovers that having a mom along in kindergarten isn’t as much fun as he thought it would be. Sure, she helps him remember the words to songs and keeps him company. But she also rearranges the bookshelf, corrects his artwork, and tries to clean out the guinea pig cage—all with disastrous (and comic) results. An energetic romp with a sweet core, The Pocket Mommy follows one little boy as he navigates the age-old conflict between the comfort of the familiar and the joy of letting go.
