    Moving away from everything familiar can be a frightening prospect, as the girl in this story experiences. She and her parents are packing up and leaving their neighborhood, their friends, and her school to move to a new town. The text, along with detailed, cool-toned richly saturated illustrations, reveals the girl reliving memories and gathering her courage during the nightlong car ride to their new home. During the drive, she looks through a photo album and revisits other moments in her life when she was afraid: jumping into a swimming pool, riding a school bus for the first time, standing alone on a stage. As she recalls the outcome of each of those scary moments, she realizes that she came through those situations braver than before. When the family arrives at their new house, the girl stands Wonder Woman–style, displaying strength and filled with optimism. This title helps show children they can learn to be in charge of their feelings and that a positive attitude will go far in allaying fear of the unknown. Preschool-Grade 2.
