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.
