Read All About It
Our association's children's book, written as a school project
by students at Springfield Ball Charter Elementary School, Springfield,
Illinois, and published by WeWrite Corporation is a great book
for kids who are moving!
Follow the adventures of The Pencil Family as they move from
Jupiter to Earth. "We're Moving!" was written to help
children understand that moving to a new home can be a fun adventure
... and help alleviate some of the trauma caused by this major
life change. In addition to a delightful story appropriate for
elementary school aged children and younger, "We're Moving!"
also includes practical advice about moving for Mom and Dad. It's
a terrific permanent addition to any library.
This fun and helpful book is available from IMAWA.
The "We're Moving!" project was financially sponsored
by independent members of the moving industry as a benefit for
children and to provide factual and unbiased information about
moving. The book does not endorse any particular moving companies.

"Moving can be very traumatic for young children. This book
is a wonderful way to help those young minds understand what is
happening and may help turn fears into an adventure. I'm proud
to be involved in such an exciting new educational endeavor, and
pleased that the Association had the vision to be a pioneer in
this new concept."

"Little people's creative minds never stop learning. BOOKS
BY KIDS--FOR KIDS! is an experience for little people to educate,
prepare, and share with other children what they see through their
own eyes and what they feel in their hearts. It's life's experiences
happening in the real world. A child's learning ability is never
ending. What a wonderful program for creative minds--exploring
imagination and taking it to the highest level. This particular
book tells how children feel when it is necessary for a family
to relocate. And it also teaches them, at an early age, that change
