Melanie Mouse's Moving Day: 11/02/06

Melanie Mouse's Moving Day

Melanie Mouse's Moving Day is the second of the two Cyndy Szekeries books we own. This book has more of a plot than Hide-and-Seek Duck. As the title implies, Melanie Mouse is moving. At first she is reluctant to move when her parents are ready to move house but what can a little mouse do?

Like the story about Duck, most of the pages are taken up with Melanie saying good-bye to all her different animal friends. There are also scenes of packing and the actual move and finally the making of new friends.

Children who are facing a move or have just moved may find some comfort in this book. It shows the good and the bad of moving. There is the work of packing and moving. There is the sadness of saying goodbye to old friends and happy places but there is also the adventure of meeting new friends and making new memories.
