Mae's First Day of School
Another back-to-School fave from the archives! Mae is starting a new school, and despite her mom’s plodding, she refuses to go, resorting to climbing a tree in the playground where she stoically tries to wait out the day. Sound familiar? Seems like a good plan until she’s joined by not one, but two others who have similar ideas and fears about the first day. Together they share their cumulative fears, and realize collectively that perhaps their plan to live in the tree isn’t quite so brilliant. A sweet story that reminds everyone that first day jitters go for children and adults alike.
