1 - 3 years. Being dropped off at childcare or cared for by a baby-sitter means saying good-bye to Mom or Dad, and for many toddlers, bye-bye is a big deal. This gentle book helps ease the transition with simple rituals: hugs and kisses, a big wave, a deep breath, and the confidence to seek comfort with the new caregiver or other children. Toddlers learn that good-bye isn't forever, it's just for a little while. Board book. 24 pages.
