Movies + Children’s Books About Moving To Help Families Deal

If you are facing a move with young children, first of all, I SYMPATHIZE. I wrote all about my experience moving with kids, and believe me, it’s HARD. Luckily, I have you covered.

This list of tv shows, movies, and kids books about moving to a new city will make your move smoother.

Because of my son’s age, these suggestions are especially pertinent to preschoolers, though they may spark some ideas for older kids, as well.

If you’re in the middle of a move and want to utilize TV and movie characters your children already love, here are my recommendations!

TV Shows and Movies About Moving for Kids

(1) Daniel Tiger – “New Neighborhood” and “Family Trip” episodes

We REALLY lean on the “You got to try new foods” song at dinner time lately, but that’s an entirely different article!

(2) Toy Story

This classic animated film tells the story of toys trying to rush back home before their owner moves away.

 In this case, kids books about moving can really help your little ones understand what the physical process of a move looks like.

Kids Books About Moving: Preschool Edition

This is a great book for helping children recognize what a move will look like and how to prepare for the big day.
