Kids say: Not yet rated

For kids unfazed by a big move, this book may be unnecessary; but for children who do think moving is a big deal, it offers dozens of ways to ease through all stages of the transition. It can help them sort out new and conflicting feelings, or record fond memories of the old home and first impressions of the new one. The book could help transform a harrowing experience into a happy -- or at least bearable -- one.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
