The Kissing Hand
Ages: 3-7 years
This is great for kids who are having a hard time separating from their parents or kids who are about to start school. This is a heartwarming story about a racoon who is also nervous to start school but learns a family trick that helps it feel safe when apart from its mama.
Ages: 1-3 years
This warm book helps ease the transition of separation 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, in this book, that good-bye isn’t forever, it’s just for a while.
I Love You All Day Long
Interactive board book that shows little ones the unconditional love of the parent--we love them no matter where they are and what it is they are doing. This story can solidify the idea that a parent continues loving a child even when they are not in the same place--making separation a bit easier.
The Invisible String
Ages: 4-8 years
One of my favorite finds to date! This book can be used for children dealing with all types of loss, grief, and separation anxiety. In this book, the children are afraid to go to sleep alone and their mother reassures them that they are always connected to their loved ones with an invisible string, no matter how close or how far that person (or pet) may be. For such a complicated subject, it is written in such a positive and heartwarming way.
