My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

I Miss School is written by Ryan Reaves, a six-year-old who misses school and activities because of the pandemic. Children who read this short but cute book will realize that it’s normal to miss school and friends. It is also beautifully illustrated with bright colors.

I thought the dedication at the beginning of the book was great: “To Mommy and Daddy, I love you. Now you should go on a date!”

I definitely recommend I Miss School for young children.

About the Author

Six-year-old Ryan Reaves began writing her debut story “I Miss School” at five years old after yearning to return to her brick-and-mortar school during the covid 19 pandemic. She wanted to write the book for other kids, so they knew they weren’t alone in their thoughts and feelings and that we are all in this together.
