Evelyn Del Rey Is Moving Away by Meg Medina and Sonia Sánchez

Have you ever had to say goodbye to a good friend? It is hard no matter what age you are, but when you are young, it is happening for the first time. It seems like nothing will ever be the same.

The Picture Book of the Week is a selection from 2020 called Evelyn Del Rey Is Moving Away.

About the Book:

In Evelyn Del Rey is Moving Away, Daniela has a very best mejor amiga named Evelyn Del Rey. They share each others secrets like where they keep their specials finds and all the good spots for hide-n-seek. They play make-believe and they spin as fast as they can. They make plans to call each other when Evelyn moves, and visit each other and spend the night. The moment finally arrives, however, when the two have to part ways and Daniela has to place Evelyn somewhere in her heart where she will never leave.

Writing Exercise:

When they part, Daniela and Evelyn place a butterfly sticker on each other’s cheek. Write a story or essay about a butterfly or other symbol helped sooth you or the character through a transition.

Happy Writing!
