Preview: Hear it

When a family has to leave their house and move to a small apartment, its hard to let go of thingsbut having one another is what counts.Almost everything Callies family owns is spread out in their front yardtheir furniture, their potted flowers, even Callies bike. They cant stay in this house, so theyre moving to an apartment in the city. The new place is small but nice, Mom says, and most of their things wont fit, so today they are having a yard sale. But its kind of hard to watch people buy your stuff, even if you understand why it has to happen. With sensitivity and grace, Eve Bunting and Lauren Castillo portray an event at once familiar and difficult, making clear that a home isnt about what you have, but whom you hold close.
