Moving: Board Books For Kids

Moving can come with all sorts of different emotions: sadness, excitement, fear, anxiety, and more. One sure way to provide some comfort and reassurance, while providing a safe place to talk about feelings, is by reading together. To help you and your little readers through a move, we've gathered the best books on the subject of moving to be a comfort and help.

As E.B. White said, "A library is a good place to go when you feel unhappy, for there, in a book, you may find encouragement and comfort. A library is a good place to go when you feel bewildered or undecided, for there, in a book, you may have your question answered. Books are good company, in sad times and happy times, for books are people - people who have managed to stay alive by hiding between the covers of a book."
