Lying in bed at night, Sarah wonders what life will be like when she moves to her new house, and her mother comes and reassures her.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- A warm, comforting story about the trepidations of moving to a new house. At bedtime, Sarah looks at her familiar surroundings and wants to know, ``Will all the things I like here be there?'' Her mother, truthful without being harsh, responds, ``Tell me all the things you like, and I'll tell you which things will be at the new house.'' Together they discuss what will come with them, but also talk about a friend Sarah must leave behind and the new friends she will meet. And her mother assures her that stars will be painted on Sarah's new ceiling ``. . . and they will glow and shine and push the dark away.'' The artwork, from acid etchings on copper plates, has a dark rich look that is soothing rather than somber, successfully conveying the cozy glow that surrounds this child at home in her bed. The people and objects are pictured from close and realistic perspectives, giving them an immediacy that reinforces the intimate feeling. Rejoicing in the reassurance of familiar things and in the honesty of a mother's love, this is a book that will work best for laptime sharing. --Jane Marino, White Plains Public Library, NY

From Kirkus Reviews:

Waking in the middle of a moonlit night, Sarah is afraid: ``Will the new house be home?'' Mother assures her that the important things will be there: the moonlight and the light from the hall, her dolls and toys, ``never...another Freddy'' but surely a new friend--and newly painted stars on the ceiling to ``push the dark away.'' A tender, reassuring vignette, its poetically expressed images beautifully reflected in Teichman's affectionate, carefully composed, realistic art--a fine debut.
