Book Title: I Miss School by Ryan Reaves

Genre: Children's Picture Book
Publisher: Dawn Reaves
Release date: Feb 2021
Content Rating: G for everyone.
“I Miss School” is written by a child, for a child. In this heartwarming and honest story, kids will understand that their feelings about the pandemic are normal and it is perfectly acceptable to feel a range of emotions related to not going to in-person school. The book instills hope for kids that brighter days are ahead.
I Miss School, by Ryan Reaves, is more about a young girl’s thoughts than an actual storybook. Ryan, a young elementary school aged girl, has been home learning because of the pandemic. She misses going to school and looks forward to things returning to normal.
The colorful illustrations and short easy-to-read thought bubbles show Ryan daydreaming about the many things she misses about school, such as school assemblies, eating lunch with her friends, and getting a hug from her teacher. There’s little resolution, just Ryan’s thoughts about school days returning to how they were prior to the pandemic. What’s impressive is the author/narrator is only six years old.
I imagine children are itching to get back to their classrooms and friends. Social distancing has affected us universally, young and old, so readers will undoubtedly share many of Ryan’s thoughts.

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.
