The Beginner's Guide to Running Away from HomeThe Beginner’s Guide to Running Away from Home by Jennifer Huget

What kid has not thought of running away a time or two? The Beginner’s Guide to Running Away from Home , for ages 4-8, is a cute story about a boy who tells you exactly what needs to be done like finding a reason to leave home, how and what to pack, saying goodbye, writing the note, and what to do once you finally leave. He explains all this while in the process of actually running away. The pictures in this story remind me of claymation and kind of quirky with a moral that home isn’t so bad after all!

From Random House: What kid hasn’t wanted to make their parents feel sorry for treating him badly? And how better to accomplish this than to run away? Here’s a guide showing how, from what to pack (gum–then you won’t have to brush your teeth) to how to survive (don’t think about your cozy bed). Ultimately, though, readers will see that there really is no place like home.

    I find it so sad that kids think about running away. I hope they can overcome it!

    Most kids think about running away; some even start packing. It’s funny what they think is important to take. This sounds like a book that parents and kids could both enjoy and the underlying message is very important. I’m not sure about the pictures, but I think kids would like them.

    This looks like a fantastic book. I work with a program that encourages families to spend time reading with their children. This would be a great addition to the bookshelf.
    Thank you for a great review. Aloha.
