Maureen King does a wonderful job depicting the fears of young children as they enter their first big stage in life; starting school. Not only are these fears acknowledged, but they are also dealt with by showing children the coping skills of making friends and "powering up".
I had the wonderful opportunity of observing children as the author read the book to them. They were very engaged in the story line and receptive to the subject matter. I would highly recommend this book for young children,

I read Maureen King's I Don't Want to Go to Kindergarten...I'll Miss You Toooo Much! with my daughter. She really enjoyed it. The timing was appropriate because she is attending preschool this fall. I am sure my daughter is experiencing the same emotions as the little girl in the book. Her favorite part is when they learn how to change their emotions. She always wants to try to push down my arm, but she can't because I'm thinking happy thoughts. The book is also well illustrated. A great find!

This book is perfect for all children and especially kindergarteners. I will read it to my students the first week of school and am getting a copy for my partner teacher as well as a copy for each of the district's 6 school libraries. It has a great message and shows children and all that they do have control and can be in charge of their feelings. So happy you wrote this book. Can't wait for the rest.

This is a must read for entering kindergarden parents to share with their children and for pre-K teachers as well. The story is one that children will readily relate to, with the bonus of a strategy to help with any anxiety the child may be feeling about going to school. The strategy can be applied when the child grows older to sleep overs and going away trips. I look forward to more from "Mrs. King's toolbox." The beautiful illustrations will engage both parents and children.

I read this book via a KINDLE Unlimited download.
As a book reviewer after reading/reviewing quite a few books individual books and anthologies of various degrees of heat in my favorite genre that of romance, my inner child desired to read something geared for it. So when I came across the title of this book, “I Don’t Want to Go to Kindergarten,” my mind quickly recalled how frighten I’d been my first day of going there.

As a child leaving one of the best friends you had at that age, your mother,

I Don't Want to Go to Kindergarten...I'll Miss You Tooo Much! is a must read. I bought this book for my niece and she adores this book. My sister also uses the book in her Pre-K class to encourage those students who are apprehensive about entering kindergarten. This book can be used for all ages really. We experience new beginnings/changes in our lives that cause anxiety. The author captures those fears and empowers children to overcome those fears with their "super powers".

I ordered this book for my daughter when she entered kindergarten as she was feeling really anxious. Loved that purchasing it directly from the author meant that I was able to get a signed copy, so I had it signed to both my son and daughter.

The book is a great tool for helping kids understand the importance of the power of positive thinking and it gives them (and the adults around them) a common language regarding channeling that positive thinking to "power up."

As a school counselor, I have sh

I have used this book with children in my therapy practice. Several of them responded well to it and felt encouraged by the idea of gaining a super power to support their scary transition into school. I think it would be best used before the school year starts and could be used for preschoolers, too.

I am a Kindergarten Teacher and I have thoroughly enjoyed this book. I ordered 3 books, one for me and 2 for my co-workers, and I cannot wait until the school year starts, to give it to them. Very cute. I also have a niece that is going to enter Kindergarten this year, and I will be giving her one as well.

Loved it! Should be "required reading" to all kinder kids...I read the story to my granddaughter...she immediately went to each person visiting and performed the strength test with them...then she explained why she was able to move their arms and they needed to have happier thoughts...
Great way to introduce elementary kids to a different way of dealing with feelings and stressful situations.

I LOVED this book! Have ready it to my grand children and they love reading it over and over. It's a great book for kids going into Kindergarten and any age really as lots of things can be scary to them, and it shows how wonderful and exciting new things can be.

I was lucky enough to win a copy of this book from Goodreads.
Not only is this a wonderful book for the preschool child transitioning to kindergarten, but it is extremely helpful to parents and teachers. The length of the book will hold little ones' attention and give parents some tips on easing their child's separation anxiety . I wish this book was around when my son went to kindergarten.

I won this book through the Goodreads Giveaways. Maureen King is amazing at what she does. I wish she was my teacher when I was in school. The lesson she taught in this book was very memorable and it was easy to understand and incorporate into your every day life. The power demonstrated in this book is extremely useful in almost every situation in life. I love how this is part of a series which different super powers to handle difficult situations. Her books will hell parents deal with any situa ...more

Useful, but could have been more so.

It tells us about a "super power" and explains why it's a "super power," but doesn't explain how to actually do it beyond just telling you to do it and saying it's easy to do.

Also, my son and I both felt a little disappointed that the story didn't continue a little further than it did. Though I do understand why it ended where it did.

Such a sweet and simple early introduction to skills our kids need and can actually learn to face fears and get through the new and the scary. They look at us wide eyed, begging for help and we say “Don’t worry”, “You’ll be fine”, “Be brave”. This book shows little ones how to find and hang onto their own power and calm when life overwhelms. Kids love this book! So do I!

This is wonderfully illustrated throughout which makes the read even more appealing. The author has put a lot of effort into making this an engaging read, and youngsters will enjoy, whilst also giving them the confidence to go to kindergarten or pre-school, showing them that it is fun and beneficial.

This is certainly one story I will pass on to my nephews and friends who have younger kids.
