Grace is a very cheerful 7-year-old girl who lives with her parents. Due to her father’s military work, the family must move regularly, but even though they do it frequently, the process is not easy. Moving means leaving things behind, such as selecting what to take, or having to change schools and not seeing classmates anymore. Although change is difficult, it also means the beginning of a new adventure with new friends. Moving is an adventure and I Move A Lot and That's Okay examines the conflicting feelings that a move involves. Shermaine Perry-Knights clearly describes the emotional struggles and the proper way to deal with them, as part of an uplifting story.
I found the subject very interesting because many children go through similar experiences. I like the fact that the book teaches that feelings of conflict are normal and that it's okay to be able to express them in order to accept them. In I Move A Lot and That's Okay you learn to see relocation in a positive way. Grace knows it's difficult, but she must support her father in the same way as her mother does. Family unity is a clear message within the story. The characters help each other, they look for the best options for themselves and for others, and all of this is positive. While it is aimed at children, this book has a very authentic perspective that I greatly admired, along with Shermaine Perry-Knights' writing.
