On the last day of school Mrs. McBee tells her students she won't be returning. There is sorrow until she gives them packing up jobs and William, who seems the least accepting of change, finds a way to give joy to all. A sweet look at change and ways to find comfort when dealing with it. The cartoon like characters do reflect the children's mixed emotions and the soft colors add to the good feeling.
