Neville is a great picture book to promote moving home, friendships and self-awareness.
“The big grey van pulled away from the curb, moved slowly down the street, and disappeared around the corner. Now it was quiet, and there he was, where he really didn’t want to be.” A lonely boy and his family move to a new neighbourhood. Taking his mother’s advice he takes a walk around the block. Once outside he finds an inventive way to meet other children and make new friends.
