I’ve been reading this book to my 4 year old because this book is exactly what we are going through now. We’re moving from a condo in the city to the country and this is helping my son prepare for the move. He’s really enjoying it and dreaming of all the things we will be doing in our backyard in just a few short weeks!!


Sweet book!

This is a book where a boy moved and it was kind of hard. I loved this book because he wasn’t frustrated. He helped and made new friends.

My daughter read this aloud to me and always wanted to read a few chapters each time.

I liked the sense of community and it was sweet to follow along in John’s adventures.

On a side note, if you’re offended by the term Indians instead of Native Americans you’ll want to pass on this book. It didn’t bother me since that was the era this was written in.
