Go Home, Mrs. Beekman! by Ann Redisch Stampler and illustrated by Marsha Gray Carrington

Go Home, Mrs. Beekman! is a charming tale of a little girl who didn't want to go to kindergarten. Poor little Emily Beekman is so scared of going to school, her mother makes a promise to stay with her all day and everyday. Emily accepts her mommy's promise and goes to school. After a while at school, Emily is used to her new classmates and her teacher asks all the mommy's and daddy's to leave. Emily watches as all the parents head to the door . . . all except her mommy. Emily's mommy is the one who has trouble letting go.

This is a really cute story about seperation anxiety told in a slightly different manner.
