His mother and father are getting dressed to go out to dinner together. "He doesn't want them to go!" They're going out and leaving him with a sitter. "He hates that a lot!" He pleads with them. He threatens to run away to a family that doesn't ever go out for the evening. He tells them he's sick, with a temperature of maybe a hundred and ten. And he tells them he won't- "he'll never" say good-bye.
Every child, and every child's parent, will recognize this oh-so-familiar struggle between grown-ups trying to go out for an evening and a child who is fiercely determined to make them stay. It's har to say good-bye but maybe a book that helps you to laugh can make saying good-bye a little easier.
