Tomorrow is the first day of school and everyone is getting ready for little Cliff’s big day. The House is all smiles, except for little Cliff himself. He doesn’t want to go to school, especially if it means leaving behind toys. home, and family. To him, school is all about “work, work, work” and being “quiet, quiet, quiet.” Good thing Mama Pearl is always right there beside him. She’ll make sure he gets to school on time.
