Ella The Elegant Elephant by Carmela D'amico,Ella's counting the days until the first day of school ... but not because she's eager to start! On the contrary, as the littlest elephant on Elephant Island, she's terribly nervous about the other kids she'll meet. Then she receives a beautiful red hat that belonged to her grandmother -- her new lucky charm. Big mean Belinda at school teases her for it, calling her "Ella the Elegant Elephant."
"Ella the Elegant Elephant" by Carmela and Steven D'Amico. Really delightful illustrations of a fanciful elephant world set in islands with a Mediterranean feel. We read this to our kids, but loved every bit of it as adults. Kids will like the blend of familiar problems (new kid, standing out, problems, courage, friendship) and the fanciful and fun solution. Among other things the illustrations remind us of a blend of Curious George and Babar. Definitely looking for more by the D'Amicos.

Ages 8-10: Dyamonde Daniel was a gem waiting to be discovered. Just ask her. So what if she had wild-crazy hair and was skinnnier than half a tooth-pick On the inside, she was extraordinary. Plus super smart. As a matter of fact, she had more brains in her tiny pinky than most kids have in their whole entire bodies. Dyamond is a great character kids will want to cheer for. #readcharlotte

Tim and his stuffed animal are nervous about moving, but soon realize making new friends can be a good thing.
Tim's Big Move! by Anke Wagner and Eva Eriksson. Tim is nervous about moving, but his cuddly friend Pico is even more nervous. What if it’s too hot? What if there are too many stairs? And worst of all…what if Tim makes new friends and doesn’t need Pico anymore? Very cute story with lovely illustrations to match.

Half a World Away, by Libby Gleeson (illustrations by Freya Blackwood) A touching story about moving away.
I will deffinately try to check out more books with this illustrators art work ~ Lovely! The story line was sad but maybe that would be comforting for a child who has recently become separated from a close friend because of a move. We have not gone through this, I checked it out from the library only because it was about moving and we hope to move into a different home later this year. Mixed feelings about this book but loved the art.
HALF A WORLD AWAY by Libby Gleeson, illus. by Freya Blackwood: Best friends Amy & Louie have a special connection, but things change when Amy moves "half a world away." Now they aren't even awake at the same time! Most similar stories have simplistic endings (a new friend arrives; the old friend visits; etc). This one does not, though it finds a sweet way for the children to connect across the world. A good story for TCKs missing friends who are too far away to visit. [Review by Heidi Tunberg]
