Children need to be able to cope with change, especially in the world today. Robbie knows that books can often be ‘just the thing’ to help children navigate sometimes-scary waters. Hearing stories of other children who are faced with change gives children resilience and also comfort. Thank you, Robbie for sharing three terrific books for children (and adults.) They are classics. And thank you for including a video of me reading the first chapter of “Little House on the Prairie.”

Adults have already transitioned from junior school to high school and then often on to a tertiary education institution.
