Children’s Books about Moving

Moving is such an exciting time for most families, but it’s also a time when children may have questions or anxieties. Thankfully, there are some amazing books available to help kids embrace the idea of moving into a new neighborhood. We researched to find the best books, with many choices in the younger ages… poor teenagers! Teen books about almost every subject are so gloomy and dramatic; if anyone has any book recommendations that might help teens cope with a big move, please send suggestions to me and I will add them,
