This book tells the story of Freek and his family. Freek has to miss his mother for a while because she is not doing so well. Therefore she goes to stay in a kind of hospital for a while. Freek doesn't like that at all and this book is about that.
It is not just a made up story, it tells the story of our family when we went through this. We hope this book helps because maybe in your home things are a bit like Freek's. It may help to talk about it with each other and learn together to make the best of it. We wish you much reading pleasure!

You probably came to this book because you are in a tough situation. The book Mommy goes to stay is, in fact, about that. The book is written to be read together with children between 3 and 8 years old. This book can help you to discuss the current situation within the family more easily: that mom (and/or dad) don't like the way things are at home, that stimuli are sometimes difficult, that it's not the children's fault if things don't go well with mom or dad. Or with mommy and daddy, because there are a lot more fights at home. Important themes have been incorporated into the story in a light-hearted, funny and recognizable manner.
It's not just a made-up story either, this book is based on our own story. Mommy goes to stay is the kind of book we would have liked to use ourselves to read with the children. We have used our own experiences as a basis for this book, but we have also incorporated our knowledge and experience as caregivers. We hope that this book can also serve as an encouragement and support for you. On the corresponding website the most important themes are briefly outlined.
