As the moving season approaches, many families nationwide are preparing to pack their entire lives and lay new roots in unknown territory. While parents are busy with logistical details, financial arrangements, and transferring everything from medical records to the family dog, children face their own moving jitters in the midst of the moving shuffle. For these kids on the move, Soaring Moon Books (http://www.SoaringMoon.com) offers "My Moving Activity Journal: Activities, Games, Crafts, Puzzles, Scrapbooking, Journaling, and Poems for Kids on the Move" by Nicole Jaeger ($13.95, March 2007).
As explained by the author, "Moving is a unique opportunity to empower children by offering proactive, fun, and upbeat approaches to one of life's biggest changes." With over 120 pages of interactive activities, "My Moving Activity Journal," guides kids through the transition of a big move. It includes games and puzzles, journaling questions that range from introspective to down-right silly, crafts and projects, topical scrapbook pages, moving poems, kid-oriented research and discovery ideas, and more. Each activity is designed to address specific moving-related questions, needs, and tasks in a creative and encouraging way.
"Most importantly, moving is a time when children need to keep having fun and families need to keep communication open," adds Mrs. Jaeger. "My Moving Activity Journal" is designed to do just that, and is the first in a series of activity journals covering various subjects. Tips for adapting the activity journal to different ages, including pre-readers, are provided.
Mrs. Jaeger has moved over 20 times, starting as a young child, and most recently, as the mother of a young child. She wrote her first moving journal during one of her own big moves at the age of fourteen. Having lived in nine different states from coast-to-coast, she has first-hand experience in moving for school, work, changes in family circumstances, and to be closer to family. This activity journal combines her own moving expertise, research, and appreciation of what it is like to be a little kid in the middle of a big change.
