This is the story of eight-year-old Bryce, whose gender and ethnicity is purposefully made ambiguous so many kids can self-identify. Bryce receives news that their mom is going back to school. Bryce is excited that they can study together. Bryce also understands the need to pitch in because Mom will be extra busy. The book ends with graduation, a celebration and a surprise: Bryce’s dad announces that he too is going back to school!
“We like that it’s teaching a real life lesson. More and more parents are going back to school and this is a simple story to help children understand what is going on.”
“The book is easy to read, clear and concise. It is written in a developmentally appropriate manner for young kids.”
“This would be nice to have in a school library to help kids whose parents are going back to school.”
