Book Review + Giveaway: The Adventures of Molly & Ollie, Moving Day

Title: The Adventures of Mollie & Ollie: Moving Day | Author: Sally Beale | Illustrator: Cheryl Crouthamel | Publisher: Mascot Books |  Genre: Picture Book (Ages 3-7) | Publication Date: March 2021

Book Description: Every child experiences change in their life. Moving can be difficult, but in this Mom’s Choice award-winning book, when eight-year-old Molly Day meets a new friend, a magical owl named Oliver Winston Howell III, her move to a new house in a new town becomes easier than she expected. Be on the lookout for Molly and Ollie’s next adventure!

My Thoughts: Thanks to ever-present wanderlust, I have moved dozens of times. It doesn’t matter if it’s between apartments in the same city or across the world, it is always a stressful, confusing time. Excitement for new experiences mixes with fear of the unknown. Exhaustion and adrenaline seem to kick in at the most inopportune times. And now that I have a young child, I can see how these emotions are compounded in a little mind, especially since a child has very little control over the situation. So, finding a picture book that addresses the complexity of moving in a fun, approachable way was more than welcome.

Mollie is moving away. Everything will be different — her home, her room, her school and even her friends. It’s hard to be excited for something new when everything you are leaving behind is already perfect! But when Mollie arrives at her new house, a magical new friend is waiting to help her see how wonderful her new life can be.

The Adventures of Mollie & Ollie is an award-winning picture book, perfect for young children and lower primary students. It is a highly creative story with vibrant illustrations that will help children navigate the complex emotions that come with leaving behind the comforts of home for a new adventure.
