Starting a new school year can be very exciting but sometimes a little scary, too. Ben is not sure he wants to return to school. What if no one remembers him? What if he forgets to get off the bus at the right stop? What if the teacher asks him a really hard question?
Anyone who has returned to school after summer vacation will know what Ben is going through – and will laugh with delight (and relief) at the happy outcome.
