Whether it’s after lunch at daycare or at the child-minder’s, in the evening with the babysitter or occasionally at Grandma’s, Grandpa’s or Auntie’s: At this age, many children learn to fall asleep without always having Mom or Dad around. This rhymed story offers great opportunities for conversations and empathetically and age-appropriately prepares young children for spending a night away from home.
