With moving season upon us again, we decided to update one of our all time favorite posts. Enjoy!
We recently received the featured picture comment from Lori Attanasio Woodring, author of My Very Exciting, Sorta Scary, Big Move. We could not agree with her more. My Very Exciting, Sorta Scary, Big Move is the perfect add-on to any of our favorite real estate closing gifts. And without a doubt, the best realtor gift for the kids. Nothing will make you more of a stand-out to any parent than presenting their child with a small housewarming gift of their own. Especially one that will help them to take control of their feelings and experiences and become active participants in their exciting new adventure.
This award winning book makes one of the most stressful life events for kids – moving – a little less hectic and a little more exciting. My Very Exciting, Sorta Scary, Big Move: A Workbook for Children Moving to a New Home guides kids from worry to wonder and fear to new friends with charming illustrations and engaging activities. This one-of-a-kind workbook walks kids ages 5-11 step by step through the entire moving process, including understanding change, strategies for managing emotions, ways to say goodbye, taking part in a new adventure, tips for making new friends, and more.
And finally, thank you Lori for bringing this fabulous realtor gift for the kids to our attention. And congratulations on all the critical acclaim My Very Exciting, Sorta Scary, Big Move is receiving!
The Best Realtor Gift for the Kids!
