Where I Live by Eileen Spinelli

Where I LiveDiana loves her yellow house with the white shutters, the maple tree in the front yard and her room with the midnight blue walls. She loves stars, writing poetry and her dad’s jokes. She also loves playing with her best friend Rose. One day her dad stops joking and her mom stops smiling because her father has lost his job. Diana is devastated to learn that they will need to move in with her Grandpa Joe who lives six hours away.

This quick to read book is written in free verse and helps the reader realize that even though moving and saying good-bye is sad, it usually means that a happy hello is waiting.
