Today we've chosen to highlight Lenny & Lucy, written by Philip C. Stead and illustrated by Erin E. Stead. Lenny & Lucy tells the sweet story of thoughtful Peter, his very good dog, Harold, and their move to a new house.
Sometimes when families grow they need more room, which may mean that an older sibling is struggling with the idea of a new brother or sister, and a move all at the same time. That's a lot of change! To help with the transition, we've selected items that will be useful in the old house, the new house, and along the way.
- The MIO Car + 2 People and MIO Trailer can help parents get a nervous child excited about moving. Load the trailer full of the People's things and explain to your child that even though the house is new, their favorite toys will be there when they arrive. (Currently only available in store.)
- New to La Stella Blu this week are the Fjallraven Kanken Mini Backpacks - great for road trips and back-to-school. Pack the bag full of treats, activities, and games to make traveling fun. (Currently only available in store.)
- The EcoLunchbox Oval Box and No-Leak Cup also transition from travel to back-to-school. No one wants a hangry little one, after all, so stock up on great containers!
- The tegu Pocket Pouch Prisms are great for trips - the blocks are magnetic, helping little hands with imaginative play on bumpy planes, trains, or automobiles. They even come with a handy felt carrying case to keep all the pieces in one place.
