Product Details


★ “Ledyard offers a meditation of sorts on the sense of comfort and belonging that home should evoke, whether it’s a place we know well or a new home to which we’ve just moved. . . . With a style that recalls the work of Jon Klassen and Christian Robinson (while still his own), Sasaki offers a rich interpretation of Ledyard’s spare, poetic text.” —The Horn Book Magazine, Starred Review

“Ledyard’s (‘Pie Is for Sharing‘) words hit every right note; Sasaki’s illustrations are earthy and enchanting.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Ledyard’s extemporaneous text leaves wide berth for kids to amplify and personalize the story—as does Sasaki’s whimsical, tranquil digital art, which features an amalgam of patterns and geometric shapes. Emphasizing the comfort of the familiar and the promise of new beginnings, this book provides a conversation prompt for families making a move.”—Publishers Weekly

“In gentle, rhythmic prose, Ledyard describes home in myriad ways . . . Sasaki’s rough-hewn illustrations in pencil and marker are cleverly backgrounded with white (to provide focus) and dark space (to evoke melancholy). And his earth-toned, muted palette pairs beautifully with Ledyard’s spare text and the story’s slow, languid pace. . . . This sweet, emotionally perceptive book will help make any transition from old to new less scary.”—Kirkus Reviews
“This heartwarming story about  family and moving will show readers the true meaning of home: the people you share it with. A poignant tale sure to help many children deal with the change that moving brings, but recommended for all.”School Library Journal
