Moving to a new home, especially in a new city, can be hard. Ceece Kelley has written a new Georgie Dupree story that will help kids find a way to cope with getting settled in a new place. Georgie Dupree: Drawn to Friends starts with Georgie, an energetic and fun-loving little girl, moving with her twin brothers and Mom and Dad from Louisiana to Washington D.C. to live with her grandmother. She must leave behind her home full of memories and her best friend Bea who lives next door. After arriving at Grandma’s, she eagerly checks out her room and neighborhood, only to find out that it does not feel like home. Her dad tells her the move is hard for everyone, but he has a big day planned for her. The next day they head to a street fair and Georgie meets a street chalk artist, which gives her an idea on how to make some new friends.
Georgie Dupree is a little girl that everyone would want as a friend. She is lively, creative, and smart. Ceece Kelley has captured all the emotions that kids feel when they must move. There is sadness, frustration, and anger. What is wonderful about Georgie is that she feels all these things, but she also demonstrates to kids that they can solve some of their own problems. Georgie has a warm loving family that Chloe Guevara has illustrated beautifully. Georgie Dupree: Drawn to Friends is an excellent choice for any family getting ready for a move. I highly recommend it!
