What the readers say

A must-have for kids on the move!
“Written by a child psychologist and a mother of four, My Very Exciting, Sorta Scary Big Move is a wonderful engaging kids activity book to help minimize the stress of moving. In a step-by-step format with beautiful relatable illustrations, kids learn strategies for making moving not so scary and definitely more exciting! Word searches, coloring pages, drawings and more involve the kids in understanding the moving process in a simple uncomplicated way. I moved a lot growing up and could have used a similar workbook. A great opportunity to help your kids understand how to deal with the emotions of moving. Truly a must-have tool for all families moving!”
Suzanne Wind, Author of The SMART Playbook

Brilliant!
“I recently reached out to Lori Woodring, Ph.D., when I read she put together a workbook for children ages five to eleven titled, “My Very Exciting, Sorta Scary, Big Move”. (Pretty darn perfect title if I do say so myself.) Wow, there are thousands of military-children experiencing a PCS (“moving” in civilian-speak) every year. Thousands of children ages 5 to 11 that could benefit from a book like this!
Leanne Kocsis, Army NG Spouse (exerpt taken from Military Avenue Blog)

The Ideal Tool for Children and Parents
“Woodring’s award-winning workbook on moving gives parents the tools they need to ensure that children process a move in a healthy way and grow from the experience. During the hectic time of a move, we don’t always have time to research all the ways to help children through it, but Woodring brings it all together for us in this beautiful children’s workbook so our children can explore their emotions, process a move and ultimately thrive. I only wish when we moved this book was available for my children.”
Katherine Eskovitz, Author/Founder of little BLUEPRINT books, Parenting Expert

What the children say

“My favorite part was all the things to do when I feel mad or sad about moving. I also love my memory box. I will keep it forever.”
Cloe, age 6, Singapore

“I loved the book!! I love my [new] friends and neighbors and your book made me realize that moving isn’t all that bad… in fact it’s great! p.s. I learned loads of new things.”
Sophie, age 10, New York

“This workbook was wonderful in helping me think about and list all the new adventures ahead of me and it also helps me to remember all the good things that I will miss – like my neighbors and close friends.”
Ella, age 10, Australia

“I was very excited but a little bit nervous to move into my new house because I had to get used to another house. My favorite activity in the book was making a worry doll. I had the worry doll to help me sleep.”
Sam, age 8, Connecticut

“Moving can be a good way to meet new friends but it’s always hard to leave behind friends you have made. This workbook has some really fun activities, mazes and puzzles that help keep you from thinking about the stressful part of moving.”
