"Pippin Moves to the City" by Julia Seaborn and illustrated by Richard Hoit is the second book in the series, A Poodle Called Pippin. This cute and fun picture book will delight young readers with colorful and playful images and an entertaining storyline. Written for preschool and early elementary level children, the topic of moving is presented quickly and gently that preschoolers can understand and grasp.

Readers will see how making new friends, even when complex and uncomfortable, is a worthwhile adventure to take. Seaborn also lets kids know it is okay to miss your old friends while making new friends. With Richard Hoits rich and vibrant illustration, seals, foxes, possums, and butterflies are introduced to the story to help Pippin make friends and learn the value of caring for your neighbors.

In addition to being a creative and entertaining story, this children’s book provides multiple resources for teachers. This book could be used for a fun unit study covering various subjects and tying them together. A list of fun questions can be used for reading comprehension review, a maze for children to follow, and a list of facts on Possums that could be turned into a science lesson.

A heartwarming, charmingly-illustrated story about a sweet poodle dog named Pippin who is not happy about having to leave all of his friends and move to a new house in the big city. His mother assures him that he will make new friends and that he can take along his toys and his bed. But Pippin doesn’t like that there are so many houses in the city. And what are those strange scratching and banging noises in the roof? Will Pippin meet some new animal friends and discover that moving to a new place isn’t so bad after all? Included at the back of this delightful story are lots of fun and educational follow-up activities. This book would be a great resource for parents and educators of children aged 4-7 years to teach them about friendship, courage, and adjusting to a new home.
