Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

On moving day, little Mouse does not want to leave the familiar surroundings of his room or backyard for a new, strange home. Mama reassures her worried offspring that even though it's hard to say good-bye to the old place, their new dwelling will be just as nice. As Mama continues to pack the family's belongings, Little Mouse's protests escalate. At long last, Mama confesses that the best thing about moving is not leaving Little Mouse behind. Children anxious about relocating will be comforted by Mama Mouse's calm and cheerful attitude toward her son's misgivings. In his picture book debut, Wickstrom provides warm, bright illustrations packed with funny details, which expand on the feelings of upheaval, loss and the eventual joy involved in adapting to new living quarters.
