When We Are Apart
When We Are Apart is a sweet rhyming picture book to help families cope with separation while a parent is away. This book will help even your youngest child name their feelings, cope with their emotions, and navigate through them while being reassured that they are loved unconditionally. Based on debut author Becca Johnsey’s own experiences helping her children deal with missing their Dad while he is away on work trips. Becca hopes this book will be as impactful to other families as it has been for her own. Perfect for ages 2-5.
Publisher’s Weekly says:
In When We Are Apart, a child learns to regulate their feelings around a parent’s work-related absence in this approachable picture book. It’s a gentle, ritual-based introduction to a difficult-to-grasp concept.
5-Star Review from Readers’ Favorite
When We Are Apart delivers a storyline that will hit home for many families with little ones. It has a common thread that everyone on some level will be able to relate to, whether that time apart is on a larger scale spanning months or on a smaller scale of just a few hours. The activities and the tips that are shared in the book are incredibly helpful and valuable for those who are struggling with the time spent apart from a parent. Becca Johnsey has created a literal helping hand in the form of a children’s book, not only for this generation but for the many generations that are to come. – Erin Nicole Cochran, Readers’ Favorite
