Daniel’s going to nursery school! He has a new classroom, a new teacher, and a brand-new cubby for all his things. But when it’s time for his mother to leave him, Daniel doesn’t want her to go. It takes a very special goodbye—and a reminder that she will always come back—to assure him that he’ll be fine. Now he’s ready to listen to stories, play at the water table, bake pumpkin cookies, and even share his favorite stuffed animal with his new friends at naptime. And when his mom returns to pick him up, he’s ready to tell her all about his day!
Told with warmth and humor, Don’t Go! is the perfect book to share with an apprehensive preschooler. Included are a cookie recipe and helpful tips for parents on starting school.
