Children's Literature
Part of the series "Separation," this book helps children learn how to cope with feelings of loss and the stress of being unsettled'. Using an interesting format of letters written to and by children, scenarios involving simulated situations, and suggestions for handling the feelings associated with moving, the book uses photos and drawings of children in similar situations. The book stresses keeping the lines of communication open between parents and children, and planning ahead to make the most of a stressful situation. The scenarios, nicely illustrated with colored drawings, help children anticipate what moving might be like as far as feelings of anomie. Suggestions are practical while maintaining a supportive tone. The book includes resources for further exploration of the subject of moving. 2002, Gareth Stevens Publishing,
