_ã–While the topic of moving is covered in a multitude of picture books, this one looks at it from a difficult perspective that most authors choose to avoid or gloss over._ã _ã”Ô_School Library JournalÔ_(starred review)
Almost everything Callie_ã_s family owns is in their front yard _ã” their furniture, their potted flowers, even Callie_ã_s bike. They can_ã_t stay in this house and are moving to a smaller apartment where most of their things won_ã_t fit, so today they are having a yard sale. With sensitivity and grace, Eve Bunting and Lauren Castillo portray an event at once familiar and difficult, making clear that a home isn_ã_t about what you have, but whom you hold close.
