9780316104586: When Marcus Moore Moved In

Americans are on the move-about one-sixth of the population, including thirteen million children, moves every year. In her lyrical prose and expressive pictures, Rebecca Bond deftly captures the initial mixture of apprehension and curiosity that many children feel upon arrival at their new home, but she also celebrates the joy of discovering a new neighborhood and meeting that first new friend on the block.

About the Author:

Rebecca Bond has moved many times in her life-from her hometown in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont to Rhode Island to Paris, France, and finally to New York.

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 2. Exuberant illustrations in Bond's characteristic style outshine text in this story about a boy moving into a new home in a city neighborhood. Energetic curves and rich colors express Marcus Moore's excitement about the move, which increases when a girl named Kate skips by with a jump rope. The palette darkens after she disappears, and it starts to rain but brightens again after the two begin playing together on the sidewalk. The whimsical spirit so obvious in the pictures isn't as successful in the text, which strains to be poetic and contains too many repetitive phrases, exclamation marks, and sounds ("ka-LOMP!"). Nevertheless, the idea of moving as an adventure and the pleasure in a new friendship come across with feeling as does an appreciation of the possibilities for play in an urban setting.
