Putting it in Perspective

Babar Goes to School by Laurent de Brunhoff (Ages 4-8) 2003

Being a King is hard work, but when children proclaim that it is difficult to be a child, Babar is baffled and decided to live a day in the life of a child, again, since he doesn't recall it being so difficult.

Babar decided to go to school with the children one day and quickly learns that it can be difficult being a child.  Especially learning that he doesn't quite recall how to do a math problem correctly or getting scolded for talking to his neighbor at circle time....  even though he was just trying to help.

At the end of the day, Babar was quite tired and decided that it was much easier to be a grown up.

Happy Reading!
