We purchased this book to assist our son, who is almost 3, with our upcoming overseas move. While this book is not geared towards overseas moves, the pictures of the parents sorting their belongings, items going into a moving truck, and items being unloaded into a new home are wonderful. Our son has requested that we read this book many times -- it is in his "favorites" rotation.

I recently purchased several books on the subject of moving for my 3-yr-old son. This is the only one I kept. We are moving from one home to another in the same town. This story talks about putting all of your things in boxes, meeting new neighbors and getting a new room. It is very positive and assumes the experience will be positive in the eyes of the child. I really like that. The other books I got assumed the child would be, angry, upset, scared, or sad about moving. I feel like there is no reason to plant those seeds of negativity. My son has no prior history of moving and therefore no reason to have any negative emotion associated with moving. I do want to prepare him for the process and this book is perfect for us. The illustrations are also really wonderful.

This book was very helpful for my 2 daughters (2 & 7). It gave them an idea of what to expect when we moved so it was not so frightening. It was very simple and easy to understand.

This book is great to make moving to a new house, school, or city easier. It isn't one that we read again and again but it did give a great opening for conversations of topics related to the move. It is one that I will share with friends when moving. But I've never found a Usborne book that wasn't super.

We are preparing to move and got this book for my 3 year. It goes through most of the steps of moving that directly affect young children and spin them in a positive light. My son enjoys reading this book and finding the duck on each page. Overall this is a great book for young children who are getting ready to move for the first time.

This book helped by 4 year old visualize the whole moving process. It was a little boring until we figured out that there is a yellow duck hiding on each page. That made my son want to read it. This booked helped him talk @ our upcoming move.

I have three year twins, and one of my twins has Autism. Our family was preparing to move to a new house and I knew this would be a very difficult transition for him. I ordered this book and read it to them every night for 2 weeks before the move to try and prepare them. The book is great, it is geared for young children, easy to understand and enjoy. I would recommend!!!!
