The Moving Book: A Kid’s Survival Guide
By -Gabriel Davis
Posting season is upon us and this is a great book if you have children and are moving! It is easy to get caught up in how challenging it is for you personally (i think I do this!) but if you have children they can feel like their lives are over. This book allows them to document their feelings, learn the facts, stay connected with the people they are leaving behind, etc. This book helps kids make moving an adventure.
The Moving Book is filled with advice and activities to help you and your child(ren) prepare for a move and suggestions for making your new location feel like home. You can use this book as a scrapbook of your moving experience. It has 8 colorful change-of-address postcards to mail to their friends, a special Family and Friends Address Book, scrapbook pages for photos and memories, games to play while on the road, ideas for mapping out their new bedroom and neighborhood, and tips on how to pack, how to find out about your new town, and how your kids can make new friends. There are also great parenting tips.
