3. Parent says "See you later, alligator!"
4. Child says "After while, crocodile!"
After a couple of days of reading it at bedtime, we were able to establish our own "Bye-Bye Time" routine, and she *magically* stopped crying. The illustrations wonderfully support the story and my daughter still enjoys reading the book from time to time.
We read it at home over a weekend and then brought it into her classroom as a special present for other kiddos that might be feeling scared or upset. We read it a few more times together in the mornings when I dropped her off and she could barely even remember to say goodbye to me by the end of week two. Off she went with her friends, knowing that I would be back soon.
