3 Children’s Books to Help Your Kids Move, Manhattan, New York

Moving is stressful for people of all ages, but it can be especially challenging for children. The sudden change of scenery coupled with the change in routine can require an adjustment. I might be helpful to introduce them to the concept of movers and moving before shifting locations. There are several excellent books on the market that broach the topic. Here are three to consider.

Books to Help Your Kids Cope With Moving

1. The Berenstain Bears’ Moving Day

This classic storybook is the ideal choice for little ones who need visual guidance to understand the activity that surrounds moving. The beautifully illustrated book is full of adventure as the family embarks on a journey to a new home. Their transition from mountain cave to cozy tree house can help children learn about the basic aspects of packing boxes and leaving one home for another.

2. Big Ernie’s New Home: A Story for Children Who Are Movingmovers

This illustrated book delves into the many emotions that youngsters are likely to feel as they watch movers carry boxes away from the home, learn that they have to change schools, and settle into a new bedroom. These challenges are sensitively tackled with comforting words that will help little ones feel more at ease with the process.

3. The Great Big Move: A Surprisingly Exciting Adventure

This book is a must for kids who are doubtful that anything good will come of the move. Whether they’re hesitant to pack their boxes before the movers arrive or can’t imagine leaving, the adventures of Katie might help as she embarks on yet another move. She transitions to multiple locations and discovers joy in each new place. The book also contains journal pages that kids can use to write their feelings during the moving process.
