Little Readers: A New Home

As a girl in Mexico City and a boy in New York City ponder moving to each other’s locale, it becomes clear that the two cities — and the two children — are more alike than they might think.

But I’m not sure I want to leave my home.
I’m going to miss so much.

Moving to a new city can be exciting. But what if your new home isn’t anything like your old home? Will you make friends? What will you eat? Where will you play? In a cleverly combined voice - accompanied by wonderfully detailed illustrations depicting parallel urban scenes - a young boy conveys his fears about moving from New York City to Mexico City while, at the same time, a young girl expresses trepidation about leaving Mexico City to move to New York City. 

Activities to go with this title:

- If you've recently moved, make use of those leftover boxes by turning them into imaginary vehicles, like a plane, train or car!

- Make your child's new space even cozier with this no-sew pillow that they can create with you

- Adorn your child's bedroom door with a beautiful DIY nameplate
