Life with Robbie: Robbie's Big Move (Volume 1) is written by Leaora E. Pierce. This book was created as a children's story book. The layout, design, and illustrations of the story were uniquely drawn up to relate to a child in a similar situation. The book has a hint of adventure, love, understanding, and emotional feelings, fear, sorrow, and happiness.

Designed by the author recreating a personal experience from her own children's childhood, this book is a great reference for parents to pull out if ever moving into a new home. In the story, Robbie is excited about the move with all the boxes, commotion, and bigger rooms of the house, but when night comes after all in his room is unpacked, he begins to feel afraid and believes there are scary things in his new house. After some explanation and comforting from his parents, he begins to feel safe and is able to sleep in his new house.

A child reading this book or having it read to them can enjoy the story and the illustrations with full understanding of what the plot is trying to tell them. Although a new house is different and can have scary attributes about it at nightfall, you are still safe and can be comforted by loved ones. I loved this book and wish I had this book to read to my son when we moved into our new house and he experienced similar issues that had happened in the story.
