What does it mean to be “alone?” Home alone, alone at a playground, alone on a beach, being quiet and alone? What happens when we are “alone?”

Sometimes there are many benefits to creating alone time. Share with your child some meaningful and important questions. Are there times when it is good to be alone? What does your child imagine it means if something or someone is “away?” How does it feel to be alone in a crowded place? Here are some picture book titles you and your child can share together about the experience of being “alone.”
