Moving Day: a stressful time.
Security is associated with home, and when a house is no longer a home, a child's world crumbles. Parents try to guide them through the transition, but children facing new emotions may not communicate well. All they know is that the word "goodbye" makes them feel unhappy.
Sarah Honey's Moving Day is the story of a family transfer through the eyes of a child. While her family has experienced a move before, Sarah has not. It seems like she is the only one who wants to stay. On moving day, Sarah accompanies her mother on a series of errands before they leave town. Each stop becomes more difficult as Sarah says goodbye to meaningful people in her life, especially her best friend. Sarah is unable to express herself, so she acts out in frustration. How will she come to terms with leaving everything behind?
With the help of Sarah Honey's Moving Day, children may identify and talk about their insecurities. Parents may discover innovative ways to find an underlying fear hidden beneath their child's behavior.
