I'd hate to teach without this!

This charming book addresses the age-old cry "I want Mommy" in a wonderfully reassuring way. Two owl babies try to reassure themselves and each other when they awaken at night to find Mommy gone. The littlest sib cuts right to the point "I want Mommy!" Engaging illustrations, a very mild sense of worry, and a soothing text let young children share their own concern along with the reassurance of Mommy Owl's return. A favorite packaging of the assurance that Mommy always comes back. The premise has been tested over years of pre-school classes--hesitant smiles replace tears and become broader with repeated reading.
