Sometimes Moms have to leave their little ones at home for a short time. It can be a challenge. Especially for Penguin! There are tears and sadness, but Penguin likes the babysitter, Mrs. Duck. They have fun together reading and playing and hugging Penguin's favorite pillow. And soon, someone's at the door - Mom is back! This sweet new board book confides that missing Mom is hard for everyone, but little listeners will delight in…

The best children's books speak to both the parent and the child. The penguin is sad because the mom is leaving. It's left unsaid the mom is just as sad to leave the penguin, if not more so. This book was especially poignant because we read it on the first day Mom went back to work.
