Until cops see a photo of a school bus driver holding a boy’s hand, she doesn’t believe it’s a big deal.

Being separated from one’s parents may be painful for any child. Thus many kids find going to school by themselves upsetting, especially when adjusting to this new chapter in their lives.

Axel Johnson appeared thrilled as he prepared to start school. His mother, Amy, took a picture of him while waiting for the school bus, and he was all smiling.

But when it was time for him to board, his face changed, and he nearly started crying. Little Axel was certainly not as tough as he thought he would be when he had to depart from his mother.


The bus driver, Isabel Lane, noticed Axel’s expression change from joyful to sorrowful. Still, she was determined to persuade him that taking the bus and attending school with many more students his age was not risky. Isabel extended her hand, and Axel took it as he sat in the seat behind her. It was a lovely moment that Amy was able to photograph.

Isabel cared about the kids’ happiness and showed that she was more than just a driver. She wanted Axel to understand that he could always rely on her, even if his mother weren’t with him on the bus. The terrified youngster felt at ease because of her demeanour.


Amy decided to post the picture of her son and the bus driver on Facebook because she found it intriguing. She anticipated that people would appreciate it, but she had no idea it would garner such high praise.

The local police agency posted the picture, receiving over 2,400 likes.


The compliments Isabel received surprised her. “I didn’t believe it was that much of a concern first.” She said, “I think this is something I’d do.”


But that was a noteworthy occurrence. The following day, Axel was no longer terrified because he knew he had a friend in Isabel. He was beaming and eager to get out on his new adventure.

Thanks largely to Isabel, Axel anticipates each new day at school.
