Major changes of any kind can present a challenge to kids. In Moving Day for Alex, the first book in our Growing Up with Alex series, Alex has trouble coping with his family’s move to a new house but learns that change doesn’t have to be scary and can even bring some great surprises and very positive outcomes.
Seasoned author Cynthia MacGregor is in touch with the emotions of children. She intuitively understands the inner journeys that happen when small ones are faced with big situations. In this series, Growing Up with Alex, the protagonist is poised to become your child’s favorite. With each title he is faced with a new challenging situation from which he ultimately grows and learns. Shouldn’t your child grow up learning these lessons beside Alex?
The illustrations of Tracie Mitchell, a diverse, fine artist who has had her work in museums as well as directing the art for corporate restaurant franchises, easily hooks children through the expansive gestures and subtle facial expression of the characters – there is no guesswork as to how the characters feel when Tracie’s on the job!
This title, suitable for pre-k to 2nd grade, can teach your child a lesson, entertain them, and open dialogue about life changes and growth. It’s also a must for any child who is facing a moving day.
