Synopsis

My New Home by Marta Altes

Moving to a new home can sometimes feel scary and a little bit lonely, but this little racoon soon discovers that wherever you go adventures soon follow. My New Home by author/illustrator Marta Altes is a beautiful and uplifting story about moving house, making friends and finding a new home. This warm, thoughtful and reassuring story is written from the perspective of a young child. It's perfect for children about to move house or start new school, but has a universal message for any child about the importance of kindness and acceptance when meeting someone new.
