A funny cure for new-school jitters.

Emily Beekman has a problem. School is starting and she doesn't want to go. Nothing changes her mind until Mom promises to go with her--every day. Emily discovers right away that school is really fun--there's an art table, a big jungle gym, and a friendly person named Teacher Sue. Emily is quickly ready to say goodbye to Mom. But Mrs. Beekman tries some pretty silly ways to stay at school, no matter how many times Teacher Sue says" Go home, Mrs. Beekman!"

A reassuring comic antidote for any kid--or parent!-- who has ever had to overcome separation anxiety.
