Book Reviews: Home Is a Window and Goodbye, Friend! Hello, Friend!

Author: Stephanie Parsley Ledyard
Illustrator: Chris Sasaki

From the Book Jacket: Home can be many things - a window, a doorway, a rug...or a hug. At home, everything always feels the same: comfortable and safe. But sometimes things change, and a home must be left behind. Follow a family as they leave their beloved old home and learn to make a new one in this heartfelt book. 

Author/Illustrator: Cori Doerrfeld

From the Book Jacket: Every goodbye brings a new beginning. Goodbye to snowmen means hello to stomping in puddles! Goodbye to the sun means hello to the stars! Sometimes goodbyes are especially hard, and sometimes new beginnings take time, but tomorrow always comes. This picture book follows two best friends as they help each other through life's transitions, both big and small!

Why They Are On My Bookshelf: I just discovered these two books and I'm so happy about it. I have a lot of requests for recommendations on helping kids transition to a new home/school or deal with a friend moving. They are also great read alouds for the classroom.
