Booklist Reviews 2019 March #1

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.

Big changes are underway for Miller and Wheeler's protagonist: her family is moving far from friends and familiar surroundings. As the girl sits uneasily in a car's dark backseat, a photo album reminds her of other days, and suddenly the whole world feels "Too big. Too loud. Too hard. Too much." Opening scenes capture a feeling of alienation, rendered in moody blues and greens. But the girl musters her inner strength ("You can make your courage," exhorts the narrator). The landscape transforms from one of smoky, industrial towers into idyllic forests and hills, and finally to a wonderful seacoast home. Miller's message about mindfulness and self-empowerment is laid down a little thick, but Wheeler's drawings are emotionally rich and deeply reassuring. Ages 4–8. (Mar.)
