Going to big school is super exciting! But when the day finally comes around, it can be a bit scary to leave your parent or carer at the classroom door.
One little girl pleads for her mum to stay, and she ends up cutting, pasting and singing along with the other kids.
Written by Éric Veillé and illustrated by Pauline Martin, Mum at School is a funny, sweet story told through the eyes of a child.
Éric Veillé is a former artistic director who shifted his focus to writing and illustrating children’s books, and Pauline Martin is a graphic designer and illustrator who has a knack for capturing expressions.
To read along with the excellent illustrations, get your own copy of the book at your favourite bookstore, or on online at Booktopia. Mum at School is published by Affirm Press.
