Tango -the Little Turtle Who Was Afraid to Go to School: The Little Turtle Afraid to Go to School: Volume 7 (Koby’s Kind Kids Books)

Separating from a parent can be very difficult for a little one and parent, especially when its time for the first day of school. Tango explores the feelings that both parent and child have during the first days of preschool and explains what happens during each of their days so that it’s easy for a child to understand why they are in school, what fun they will have, what they will learn, that they are safe and most important, that mom or dad will be back at the end of each day. It also acknowledged the fact that separation anxiety is not just something that a child goes through. Separation anxiety in almost all cases involved the parent’s feelings as well.
