Shermaine Perry-Knights has given military families a true gift through the pages of her awesome children’s book series, I Move A Lot and That’s Okay! The book series goes through all of the stages of a Permanent Change of Station (PCS)- a move between one duty station and another.
For a child, this can be difficult as you have to pick up and move from your home to a whole new place. Sometimes within the United States and other times, across the world. In her book, she provides relatable, detailed descriptions of this process through sweet stories about military kids experiencing a PCS.
“I Move A Lot and That’s Okay” teaches kids how to emotionally cope with relocation. This adventure is filled with sadness, loss, acceptance, and hope. By the end of the story, young readers will be chanting the theme of the book: “I move a lot and that’s okay!” While this book features a military child, its message of resilience and hope are universal ones that help all children to overcome obstacles more easily.“-Shermaine Perry-Knights
Her book series is an amazing resource for military families and should be on all the bookshelves of military kids to better prepare them for these big changes that are sometimes inevitable in their lives.
