The purpose of this study was to develop a
modified form of bibliotherapy (biblioplay) and to
assess its usefulness in reducing separation anxiety
associated with the transition to preschool. Six
biblioplay sessions were conducted with 28 children
using props for six consecutive days. Teachers rated
each child on Scale 2 of the Hall (1967) Inventory of
Separation Anxiety. Findings indicated that there was
no significant difference between the group that
received the biblioplay sessions and the group that
did not. The indication that biblioplay conducted
after the first days of preschool does not produce
significant results in reducing separation anxiety
suggests that other approaches to working with these
children need to be formulated.
