What's A New Home About

Publisher Summary

As a girl in Mexico City and a boy in New York City ponder moving to each other’s locale, it becomes clear that the two cities – and the two children – are more alike than they might think. But I’m not sure I want to leave my home. I’m going to miss so much. Moving to a new city can be exciting. But what if your new home isn’t anything like your old home? Will you make friends? What will you eat? Where will you play? In a cleverly combined voice – accompanied by wonderfully detailed illustrations depicting parallel urban scenes – a young boy conveys his fears about moving from New York City to Mexico City while, at the same time, a young girl expresses trepidation about leaving Mexico City to move to New York City. Tania de Regil offers a heartwarming story that reminds us that home may be found wherever life leads. Fascinating details about each city are featured at the end.

The illustrations in this book are simplistic yet show some beautiful places in two cities. It helped me acknowledge the struggle children go through during a move.
