The Book

Poor sweet Mila's tummy hurts.  She feels sad and discouraged and rejects playing with the other kids at her school when they invite her to play with the puzzles or blocks.  Come snack time she refuses to eat and that's when her teacher discovers Mila is missing her mommy.  She takes Mila by the hand and explains to her that sometimes everyone misses their mommy.  

Mila's friends Sen and Liza step in to help her feel better and cheer her up.  When Mila decides to join in their play she forgets about her tummy hurting and actually smiles and has fun.  

"Now I don't miss my mommy so much." I say with a big smile.  "Thanks to you.  You're my best friends!"

The illustrations are colourful and expressive.  The adorable characters are very relatable and diverse.  This simple story about emotions and separation anxiety is perfect for that targeted age group.  I highly recommend this book.

Meet the Author

Judith Koppens (Deurne, NL, 1969) was – and is – a bit of a dreamer. In her young years, she spends her hours drawing and making up stories. She continued this when she started working as a teacher at a primary school after she finished her pedagogic study. Her students inspired Judith with their spontaneity and sincerity to write all sorts of stories. In 2004 she used one of them for a picture book. Since then she has written more than 40 books for children aged 3 to 6 years and for adults who have an affinity with education and picture books, next to her job as a teacher.
