When I Miss You

USD $7.48

By Cornelia Maude Spelman; Illustrated by Kathy Parkinson

Young children often experience anxiety when they are separated from their mothers or fathers.  This newest title in The Way I Feel series features a young guinea pig who expresses her distress when her mother and father go away.  "Missing you is a heavy, achy feeling. I don't like missing you. I want you right now!"  Eventually the little guinea pig realizes that sometimes she and her parents can't be together.  When that happens, she knows that others can help.  "They can snuggle with me or we can play.  It helps me to be warm and close to someone.  They remind me that you'll be back."

Softcover, 24 pages. 8 x 10 inches.

Published by Albert Whitman & Company.

Cornelia Maude Spelman worked as a therapist with children and families before turning full-time to writing. She lives with her husband in Illinois.

 

Reviews:

"Few picture books deal with this common childhood trial in such a helpful way, acknowledging the emotions and providing reassurance…A good resource for parents and a natural choice for children who will take comfort in finding their emotions mirrored in a picture book."  ~ Booklist
