Don't Go to School!

by Máire Zepf, Tarsila Krüse



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
Benno is really excited about his first day at school. But there’s one problem: MOMMY!
A laugh-out-loud twist on a familiar theme.
What can a little bear do when he’s all ready for his first day of school—but his mother isn’t? “DON”T GO TO SCHOOL!” she wails. “STAY HERE WITH ME!” Mommy sulks, she’s shy, she even throws a tantrum. Can Benno convince her that everything’s okay? He comes up with an ingenious idea to help her adjust—one that many a mom and dad will recognize. This humorous story will reassure and delight nervous children, while parents feeling a little sad to see their babies grow up and march off to school will empathize with Mom!

Author Máire Zepf’s debut children’s novel, the time-travelling thriller Tubaiste Ar An Titanic (Cló Mhaigh Eo, 2012), was short-listed for Gradam Réics Carló, the Irish-language children’s book of the year award. Don’t Go to School! is her first picture book. She lives in County Down in Ireland.
