Trusted Reviews & Ratings

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
4.5 / 7.0

This is a great book to talk about a friend moving away and working through changes in life for children. I love how simple this book is, written in verse, with short lines and chapters. It’s an easy read and has some drawings along the way, too. Overall, I’d say this book is good, but not great, and I’d mostly recommend it as a fun, easy read and for kids who have a friend move or could use a story about such nice babysitters. :)
