As the mother of two daughters, I know that bonding with my girls is sometimes tough. Especially in the tween years. Those are also the years when I want to know what is going on in her
life to be sure everything is ok. I have found that sharing books is a great way to discuss important topics without directly asking her. I’m always looking for books that both my daughter and I will enjoy.
Allie Finkle Moving Day
When I was given the opportunity to review the Allie Finkle book, I jumped on it. Personally, I love all of Meg Cabot‘s books. Scholastic sent me two copies of the book for my daughter and I. Moving Day is the first book in the Allie Finkle Rules for Girls series. Allie is a 9-year-old trying to figure it all out. She creates rules to help her remember to be a good sister, student, and friend. In the first book, Allie’s parents move her from their suburban home to an old Victorian house right in town. The book takes you through Allie’s journey of being the new kid in school and how she tries to fit in.
As it turns out, my daughter had read the book when it first came out, so we created this video review of the book:
disclosure: I received 2 copies of the Allie Finkle Moving Day book from Scholastic in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
