Our Review

Moving to a new place can be difficult for children during the tween and teen years – especially if the move also means uprooting them from a school and a comfortable circle of friends. Kids can feel alone, pushed to the side, and unsure of where they could possibly fit in or if there is a place for them. One way to help kids is by reading positive and uplifting children’s books that explain the experience of relocating to a new place. Monica and Michelle: Travel the World written by Vera Harris is a perfect book for kids who are about to make the exciting yet oftentimes scary journey into a new city/country. This book can open up communication, ​​helping your kids move to a new environment and feel more secure in this big change.

Monica and Michelle follow the story of twin sisters, Monica and Michelle Williams. They currently live in Germany with their parents who are from North Carolina and both serve in the U. S. Air Force. Monica and Michelle are accustomed to their parents receiving moving orders to new and exciting locations. And this time they have to move to Spain. While Michelle is happy about their big move, Monica is not. She refuses to move if it means having to leave her science project team, or to leave the position of a head cheerleader of her cheering squad. Throughout the course of the book, Monica learns how to deal with her sadness, confusion and worry in a positive way. While initially saddened by the move, she learns that despite leaving some things behind there will be many things her family will share in their new home and she realizes the most important thing is being together.

The author, Vera Harris has done a fantastic job in creating a simple story to help children visualize where they are going, thereby relieving some of the anxiety associated with relocation. This book uses colorful, and expressive images which go along with simple text to help children connect words and emotions. Kids will identify with Monica’s character and that can help children realize that they are not the only one having to deal with managing a move.

Final Verdict

Monica and Michelle: Travel the World is an amazing resource for military families moving to a different home, community, and school. Families can use Monica and Michelle to introduce the transition of moving and help children think about ways to manage their feelings and navigate the challenges that come with moving.
