Honey Maloo, a bee who lives with her mother in the knot of an oak tree, is getting to be a big bug and she’s finally old enough to attend school. Honey, however, has different plans: She would much rather stay at home with her mother, who she loves dearly, so she tries every trick in the book to stay off the school bus.
With a bit of tough love and a guiding hand from her mother and the kindness of Ms. Petal, her schoolteacher, Honey is finally convinced to go to class and realizes that school can be fun and interesting, and that her mom will be waiting happily for her when she gets home.
Separation anxiety is a common dilemma in young children, and can make even the briefest of partings excruciating for parents and children alike. Charming, accessible, and informative, I Don’t Want to Go to School offers parents and teachers an engaging way to teach children to cope with separation from loved ones, and helps children focus on their strengths to overcome challenging situations.
