    This is a wonderful book for toddler especially when both parents and kid suffer from separation anxiety. The mom uses the "Kissing hand" to teach the baby that she is always with him. A friend of mine lent it to me and I used it with my son in the past. I totally want to buy it for his first day at preschool! I love this idea!
