Really enjoyed this book. Beautiful illustrations with collage mixed in. Cute self discovery that came from moving in addition to the child dealing with all the emotions of not wanting to move and not wanting to adjust to a new place... Great one to share when approaching the idea of moving.
To ease the trauma of moving to a new house, featuring dinosaurs.
