"Fun to read and endearingly illustrated, Mommy Always Comes Back! is a perfect companion for the child (and his or her Mom!) that has trouble separating in those early weeks at nursery school. Mom’s clear good-bye and Sarah’s keeping Mom in mind show how separation is a two-way street."

            Sackler Lefcourt Center for Child Development

"Penny Schnee-Bosch's Mommy Always Comes Back! not only shows what to expect on the first day of school, it also encourages a child to experience all the thrills, anxiety, fun and ultimate success of that special day in the imagination. ...

"Our son then started singing the magic song, 'Mommy and daddy always come back' and telling us what happened in school each day. When our son went back to school last week after 2-week spring break, he just walked right into the classroom with a smile on his face! ... We are lucky to have Penny who is an expert on separation but at the same time a truly nurturing and caring teacher." Read more

"Within the first two weeks of school the little ones began singing the song along with Penny and soon after I could hear them singing it to themselves sometimes, too. The children and their parents quickly learned from Penny's wisdom, kind nature and confidence that they were, indeed, safe at school and that Mommy always does come back!" Read more

"Sending my first and only child to preschool was one of my toughest experiences. I did not realize how hard it would be to separate from him and for him to separate from me. ... Penny taught my son some great tricks to deal with his separation anxiety and he really began to understand that mommy always comes back!" Read more
            Asema A., Parent

"Separation can be a very difficult and trying experience for parents. Leaving one's child with someone they don't know very well can be jarring for any parent. ... While assisting Penny, I watched as she engaged the children warmly and playfully in a way that made them happy and comfortable in the classroom setting. The children were soon racing down the hall the get to our classroom." Read more
            Jill F., Teacher

"When I started my second career as a preschool teacher, Penny was my mentor. Under her tutelage, I learned curriculum strategies and classroom management but most importantly she guided me through the separation process. Penny taught me that separation is a twofold process. It not only involves the children but equally the parents." Read more
