Book Description

Change is not always easy. So how does a child successfully cope, adjust, and be happy or even excited about moving to their new home?

"There's one thing that will not change-
Think Hard! I know you'll guess.
Your friends and family love you,
no matter your address!"

When Massy learns she is moving she finds herself consumed by emotions and filled with questions. But her lovable cat Blue, guides her through the process in a mindful, lighthearted, and playful (sometimes silly) way. Together, their journey and adventure lead them to understanding and happiness at their new destination.

"Children open their understanding when they find that others face challenges similar to theirs. Kellie Carte-Sears has created a story that will help children meet the challenges of insecurity during a home moving process. What a delightful story!"

Rodney Miles Taber

“Kellie Carte-Sears’ new book Moving Away Will Be Okay! has what so many well-intended and often beautiful children's books often miss—a protagonist (Massy) who is wise and compassionate for her young age, but an example for young readers and listeners as they journey through what can be a fairly traumatic experience for children—moving! With all the adventure, visual beauty, and rhythm of a great kid's book, Moving Away Will Be Okay! also gently guides a child through what might at first seem scary to a point where they come to see the experience as an adventure, and the place they arrive as --home--. A must for any family on the move!”
