"The soothing colors, helpful Note to Parents and Caregivers and textual pattern of separation and return should prove comforting to children and caregivers alike." --Washington Parent

"Authors Carol Zeavin, MSEd, Med, and Rhona Silverbush, JD, use groundbreaking research to craft age-appropriate stories that takes into account the language level and comprehension level of a toddler." --First Time Parent

"It sounds crazy, but I've actually learned a lot from the Terrific Toddlers series that Magination Press has been putting out this year. Each book is as instructive to small children as they are to adults, and nothing shows this off better than this book." --Betsy Bird, A Fuse 7 Production

"In a sweet and repetitive way, this picture book reinforces that parents "always come back." The adults in this simple read aloud acknowledge their child's feelings and respond supportively. As is true for the other books in this series, the section for adults at the end of the book is excellent." --Joyce's Mystery and Nonfiction Book Reviews with some Non-fiction too!

This is a great go-to series when children are dealing with scary feelings that they don't understand and have a difficult time communicating. Everything is a big deal." --Children's Books Heal

"I really like this Terrific Toddlers series and think I'll be putting a set in my library." --Mom Read It
