The Moving House is a story that first and foremost aims to entertain, while also serving as a resource to assist children with the potentially traumatic experience of relocating house.
A rather foolish squirrel climbs down from a tall tree and builds his new house on what he thinks is a large rock; but it turns out to be something quite different! Each morning as he wakes up, he finds that his house has mysteriously moved and he is puzzled. How can a house move? The squirrel quickly adapts to his foreign surroundings each day, that is, until he finds himself in danger. With delicate and charming illustrations, this book deals with the themes of belonging, resilience and friendship. The soft tone and wide perspective illustrations make the book useful for reading aloud to groups of pre-schoolers.
