20+ Helpful Books About Moving for Kids

Whether you’re PCSing with the military or moving across town, it’s a big, big deal, especially for kids. I rounded up more than two dozen books about moving for kids, especially for little ones who may not know how to cope with all the big feelings they’re experiencing—or will encounter—in the days leading up to the actual move.

Moving soon? These books about moving may help kids with the big feelings they're experiencing, or will encounter in the days leading up to the actual move.

We’re a military family who has moved eight times, and three of those times have been overseas moves (Italy, Germany, and England). Each time we move our kids are in a different stage of their lives, but reading books about moving helps them work through their emotions.

While we’ve read—and own—many of the children’s moving books on this list, several of these books about moving for kids were recommendations I wanted to share with you.

This post was originally published in 2020 when we moved from America to Germany, but I’ve updated for our current move to England with some more books, including books for older kids.

Also, you know your own kid’s reading level, so take these “recommended” ages with a grain of salt. My older girls still enjoy reading some of the “younger” books since they remember them from the last move and find it comforting.
