Who Will Go to School Today?

Who Will Go to School Today?

by Karl Ruhmann Illustrated by Miriam Monnier

One day Sam decides he does not want to go to school. He comes up with the idea of sending his stuffed monkey in his place. As he dresses the monkey in his own school clothes, tells him how to behave, and describes kindergarten, Sam realizes how bored he'll be at home. Sam decides that they will both go to school today.

Whether it's first-day jitters or middle-of-term blahs, here's the perfect solution for children who don't want to go to school.
