Editorial Reviews

"Skrypuch treads familiar ground, separation anxiety is a major aspect of childhood development. But this tale isn't full of tantrums or tears; instead, the kids in these families are shining examples of confidence and security. . . Skrypuch follows only four families, but the variety of ethnicities and careers included is commendable. . . Sunny, cartoonlike illustrations add to the cheer."


"Charming, playful illustration of different households that have working mothers and cheerful children illustrate this warmhearted picturebook, especially recommended for read-aloud storytime between parents and children."
