Mama, Don't Go! by Rosemary Wells is the first in the Yoko and Friends School Days series. It's Yoko's first day of preschool and she's mortified. She wants to play with the other kids but she doesn't want her mother to leave. Mama, with the patience of a saint, agrees to stay with Yoko at school not one but through three days of school!

The story is about separation anxiety and the fears that some young children might have about going to school. Yoko's biggest fear is that her mother won't come

Yoko is having trouble adjusting to being dropped off at school. As much as she enjoys her school activities and friends, she doesn't want her mother to leave. Her friend, Timothy, helps her understand that sometimes mothers need a break but they will always come back. A gently reassuring book that captures the anxiety of the mother / child separation.

Mixed feelings on this title about Yoko starting school and not wanting her mother to leave the classroom. could be my tough love approach to this type of thing...found the book at times a bit overindulgent of the child's whimpering. cold, i know.
