I'm not good with kids---help!!

TQC,

I am driving two of my friends kids to school and back while she is in Trinidad with her husband and two youngest sons. The girl, who's 9, I am not very worried about. She's chatty and confident. The little guy though, who is 4, is really shy. They know who I am, but they don't know me well.

I think he is going to be upset regardless as he is a sensitive little guy and will miss his parents. He is a total mama's boy too. She did warn me that he might cry going to school. Is there anything I can do to make him feel more comfortable and/or keep him happy?

Bribing little kids is not below me, but I don't want to pump him (and his sister--gotta be fair!) with sugary treats every day, and that's the only thing I can think of.

Any ideas?

(If this were dogs, I would totally know what to do. Kids baffle me!)
