Wasn't sure whether this should be in Behaviour but never mind...dd2 (2) is going through the most extreme form of seperation anxiety at the moment, only wants me, only wants to be carried, can't bear dh, has to be with me AT ALL TIMES etc etc. Anyway, I know its just a phase...but we enjoyed reading Owl Babies tonight (if you haven't got it I can recommend it) - everytime the baby owl says 'I want my mummy', dd2 said 'I want my mummy too, I love my mummy and I miss my mummy' (bless, but also ).

Anyway to cut a long story short I'd love any recommendations of suitable picture books for 2/3 year olds that deal with mummy going away/coming back theme.
