A St Albans mum has put pen to paper after her daughter had trouble settling into nursery to help parents in a similar situation find a solution.

Stacey Turner, of West View Road, and mother to Molly, 5, and Emily 3, is celebrating the release of My Tiny Book, the first in its series aimed at helping young children and parents through various stages.

She said: “It’s the worst feeling in the world to know your child is upset and you feel like it’s partly your fault for leaving them at nursery.

“I wrote this book first with Molly in mind and the feedback from her teachers was fantastic.

“In fact after a couple of weeks the change in attitude and her reaction to nursery was completely different.

“It was then I thought this type of book could be very useful to other parents and children going through a similar situation.”

She then decided to create a book which can be personalised and become a keepsake.
