This poignant children’s story features two young girls, Evelyn and Daniela, who are neighbors and the very best of friends. The story takes place on the day Evelyn and her family are moving to a new home. The girls spend the day together, playing as usual, but with the bittersweet knowledge that this is their last day together. The ending is sad, yet sweet and hopeful.
An excellent book for discussing emotions, relationships, life changes, loss, and communication with those we love, Evelyn Del Rey Is Moving Away, is a story that touches the hearts of children and adults alike.
