The Pigeon has to go to school

Huurah for the Pigeon!!! He is Going to School ON Bus 🙂  🙂  🙂  Is he going to drive it? No. But at least he can get on the bus 🙂 🙂

The Pigeon HAS to Go to School!

Thank you, Mo Willems, for writing this lovely book

While walking around in the store, my eyes glanced at The Pigeon Has to Go to School. I had to read it right there and then. I chuckled while reading it. What a complete circle for the pigeon!! Finally, he will be allowed to get on the bus 🙂 🙂 He is invited to get on the bus 🙂 🙂

I like the story for its simplicity, the message, and just for the pigeon. Mo, take a bow for giving voice to children just starting school, all of us who are afraid and fighting with ourselves before starting a new endeavor. Talk about intrinsic motivation, a cause that allows us to overcome our fears, our excuses and embrace a new journey.

I relate to this book on a personal level. I am on my journey of becoming a marriage and family therapy. Soon I will start field experience. I also have insecurities, just like the pigeon. Like him, I am overcoming them as I am looking forward to earning my degree and starting a career helping families define strong for themselves.

Have you read the book? What do you think of it?
