Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sue Poduska
Part of the "Real Life Issues" series, this is a good reference for anyone facing a move. As with other volumes in the series, the author covers a myriad of topics, often just touching on the meaning of each topic. She touches on the debt crisis, homelessness, military families, and job advancement. The reader is urged often to seek more information and to get help. Many reasons for making a move are presented, along with brief explanations of economic and societal pressures. Sometimes the economics are a little beyond the scope of concerns otherwise presented, but are nonetheless there for the curious reader. The author offers strategies for dealing with leaving a home and for establishing a familiar environment in a new home. The "tips for coping" page has excellent suggestions for making the move less stressful. Each page is organized with several short boxes, a photograph, and highlighted topic. This feels chaotic, but may be an attempt to make it easier for readers to find their individual concerns. The table of contents, glossary, "find out more" page with websites, and index provide quick ways to get more information. Reviewer: Sue Poduska
