The Little Boy Who Was Precious by Reagan Chesnut

What were the main themes of the book? Being away from a loved one isn’t easy, especially when you are a little one. This book is about a little boy whose parents need to make an overseas trip and he stays with his grandparents. Everything about this book is flawless and the illustrations are superb. 

Describe your favourite scene. When the little boy arrives at his grandparents' house and he “threw himself into her arms and stuff a cookie into his mouth.” This is a memory we can all relate to no matter how old we are.The warmth of a grandparents' home is reassuring even in the most confusing of times. 

Were you able to connect with the main character and why? Separation anxiety is something we’ve all had to deal with. As much as young children are fearful of being abandoned, parents worry about being apart from their little ones too. This is a good book for parents to explore the topic with their younger children.
