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 Review:

Moving is one of the life events that children may find hard to cope with because of the anxiety caused by separation from the familiar and fear of the unknown. Molly feels upset when she has to say bye to the backyard she loves to play in and her neighbor/best friend Becky she loves to play with. She doesn't even want to unpack the moving boxes in her new bedroom until a friendly, gentlemanly owl that Molly later nicknames Ollie presents himself on the windowsill. Ollie helps Molly get comfortable in the new environment by asking her to focus on all the things that haven't really changed since moving, such as her beloved animal friends, her clothes and her books and toys.

With colorful illustrations, lovable characters, and interesting conversations, the book mixes reality with fantasy to encourage young readers to acknowledge their mixed feelings about changes and to learn to deal with them wisely. It also reminds parents to be more conscious about the sadness, stress and confusion their children might experience when adjusting to a new neighborhood, new community, and new surroundings. While the story may appeal a great deal to children facing a move, it offers practical and valuable lessons for anyone who has to make a transition to something new and different.
