Children's Literature with moving in mind...

Real Estate Agent with Edina Realty



Have you been looking for books to prepare your children for the adventures of moving


I have been on the lookout for some great kid's literature to help the babes and little ones to understand what moving is all about.

Periodically I will be writing some posts regarding my finds and want to keep an index for easy reaching.

Feel free to peruse my posts and hopefully you'll find a book that will help with your own family move!

Hey Lindsey - This is a great resource for your moving families!  You can probably get the books at a substantial discount if you buy them in bulk online and then give them to your buyers and sellers when needed.  That will go a long way in establishing good will between you and your clients.  Terrific idea!

Emcee - I'm working on something like that. I am up to three children's books that are great resources. It is my aim to have them available for buyers to utilize. :)

This is an awesome series, Lindsey!  And to come up with a list of titles that you can give out to clients is a great idea!  (I'm heading to the library website to check out these books for my own kids!)
