Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

If Mama, Don't Go Out Tonight (reviewed below) explores the fear of Mom leaving the nest, this book gently explores the idea of a child heading out to school for the first time. How will Owen the pig survive a whole day at preschool without his mother? Not to worry, says apple-cheeked Mommy: all Owen has to do is remember that she'll love him "all day long." As his mother imagines him at various points in the day ("I love you when you make a new friend"; "I love you when you march to a clang-clickity-clang" as he bangs the cymbals), Burris (Kate and Nate) presents the series of scenarios with humor and affection. She renders the porcine cast in a glowing shade of peach-a warmhearted visual foil for the bright, bold colors of Owen's preschool world. Many of the author's scenarios focus on mishaps ("I love you when you accidentally make a mess or when you can't wait for the bathroom"), but overall, the volume sends a reassuring message that parents love their children even while they are apart. As for the young hero, his pudgy physique and extensive repertoire of expressions makes him a credible stand-in for any human youngster with start-of-school anxieties. Ages 3-5.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K-When a little pig worries about heading off to school for the day, his mother reassures him that her love for him goes everywhere he goes. "I love you all day long," she says. "I love you when you make a new friend.- or when you make a mistake." She conjures up all the triumphs and trials of the day, and the pictures, placed on ample white space, show the piglet burping at lunch, tripping over his shoelaces, singing "Itsy Bitsy Spider" all by himself, and feeding the fish. And at the end of the day, she says, "I love you when you fly into my arms and when you hug me as tightly as you can. I love you all day long!" The bright, expressive illustrations and the spare text work well to bring the reassuring message home.

Format: Hardcover
We stumbled upon this book on a rainy day trip to the bookstore. Being away from their parents is often hard on preschoolers and this book is an excellent resource to calm those fears. The activities that Owen experiences are great examples of a typical day at preschool/daycare, which builds familiarity. I especially love how this books bring up the fact that even when we make mistakes, we are still very lovable. What a treasure we have discovered in this book! This has quickly become a favorite!

The message in this book, "I love you all day long," was perfect for when my 2-year-old told me that she missed me when she was at daycare. The book helps give a framework for reminding your little one how much you love them without being overly emotional. It shows day-to-day activities that my daughter really related to, like snack time and going down the slide. And it's just a cute book. This is one of her most requested books, even after her separation stage has ended.

Format: Hardcover
A joyous book to help any child feel better about going off to preschool or kindergarten--for the first time or just for the new school year. Bright, colorful, uncluttered illustrations and smooth effective prose show us little Owen Pig's worries (with wonderful facial expressions) and how his mother is able to reassure him that he is loved even when she is not there. My own four year old asked for repeated readings and loved every page. Enthusiastically recommended.

I discovered this book by accident and it has literally become a staple of evening reading with my 2 1/2 year old. It's so great to watch a child grasp the concept that just because a parent is away from them during the day, doesn't mean they don't still love them. My daughter says "I Love and miss you all day long, Mommy" almost every day when I leave for work. I have given this book to all of my working mom friends, too! A must have!
