Book Nook: Finding Joy in School Runs

 With many schools being closed for months, many parents have enjoyed the break from the “daily school run”; an experience that often involves traffic jams, a car full of noise and the perception that the chore negatively impacts mum or dad’s career. 

However, as Florence Ilumoka has experienced first-hand, the school run can so quickly and easily become the most positive, uplifting part of the day - an experience that promotes parent-child bonding and can literally become the experience of a lifetime.


In her new book, ‘Finding Joy in School Runs’, Ilumoka unravels everything.




This book was inspired by a personal life story which is a narrative about the challenges faced by every parent and guardian in the journey we all know as “School Runs”. It is intriguing and exciting, full of interesting suggestions that will make everyone to change their common perception of the duty as “boring monotonous routines” to “joyful elevating memorable experiences of a lifetime”.


It also shares practical ways to stay positive and motivated as a parent or guardian and the author excellently explains the connection between a parent’s joy and that of a child. The author highlights the importance of a parent’s positive attitude in his or her child’s life.


More than ever before, it will awaken and provoke a new mindset which focuses on the greater good that will then motivate everyone to have fun with school runs. From the first chapter to the last chapter, it is refreshing as it encourages every school runner to joyfully set the pace today onward and determine to look forward to another day with joy in every condition.


The author has been particularly expressive about the positives in school visits, gleaning from her personal experiences.


“I want every parent or guardian to reframe what the school run is, the opportunity it provides, and how important it is for a family,” explains the author. “It might sound extremely foreign at first, but the school run is such a gift that we must learn to embrace. In this book, I teach you how and why.”


Continuing, “I wake up every day and jump out of bed excited about the school run. When my children are at school, the prospect of the afternoon school run is what keeps me going throughout the day, and I can’t wait for it to begin again. Anyone can thrive off this same mindset. I am so thrilled to help you transform your life in this way.”


‘Finding Joy in School Runs’ is due for release on July 30th, 2020.
