Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Joanna Cole addresses separation issues for youngest children in When Mommy and Daddy Go to Work, also illus. by Chambliss. During her time at day care, the child narrator imagines what her parents are doing while she paints pictures, eats lunch and takes a nap. The closing "Tips for Parents," which suggest specific actions to help lessen a child's separation anxiety, should help ease the transition.

From School Library Journal

reS-A supportive book for children starting day care. Carly introduces readers to her family as they begin their day. While the child is initially sad when her parents drop her off at her program, she soon becomes immersed in the activities. During the day, she thinks about what they are doing at work-her mother is selling cars and her father is teaching. At lunch she speculates about what they are eating. Then her mother and father return for her, just as she had been told they would. A page of helpful suggestions for parents follows the story. The delicately toned illustrations complement this soothing story that is good for one-on-one reading. Pair it with Robin Ballard's My Day, Your Day (Greenwillow, 2001) for read-alouds.

Format: Hardcover
We used this book to prepare our two year old son for a transition to part time daycare. The text is clear and concise, a few lines per page with illustrations. The illustrations show ethnic diversity. The author avoids stereotypes, for example; the mother works as a car salesperson while the father is a teacher and there are male and female daycare workers. The book takes a young girl through her day at daycare and ends with mommys and daddys return. There are tips for parents at the end of the book.

My daughter has been in daycare from the time she was 4 months old (she is currently 2). While she was happy there, we still would have a somewhat difficult time at drop off. She was always reserved and a would sometimes cry (she was always fine once she saw us leave). We found this book in the library and once we started reading this book to her, we saw a difference in her right away. She walked in by herself and was very confident. No tears. Sometimes when she is playing she repeats parts of the book "Mommy and daddy always come back..." I have found most Joanna Cole books to have this effect on her!

We read this book many times to our daughter when she was in daycare. It reassured her that we would always come home at the end of the day. She is now in middle school and she still remembers us reading this book to her.

This book was similar to my child's experience of child care so she enjoyed reading it over and over again. It helped open a dialogue about mom and dad working.
