Spending the night away from home can be hard, but Amy figures out a way to stay at her grandma’s house and still not miss her family. After Amy decides to visit her grandma for three whole days, she packs her favorite things. When she unpacks the rug, horse, and sailboat, they transport her back to her house where she can peek in on her family. The final night, Amy becomes upset when she doesn’t see her family at home, but that is only because they have come to grandma’s house early. This is a comforting story about the consistency of family, and how even when you cannot see them, they are still there waiting. The pace is gentle and the illustrations are soft and delicate, perfect for bedtime reading. Share this with any child nervous to sleep away from home, and pair it with Margaret Reed MacDonald’s The Squeaky Door (2006). Preschool-Kindergarten. --Tiffany Erickson
