In A New Home, Tania de Regil tells the alternating stories of a girl in Mexico City about to move to New York and a boy in New York City heading for Mexico. Very different situations one might think.

After hearing the news, each child is anxious - about things they will miss, where they will play, and the friends they play with. Will life be very different in the new city? Will they like their new homes?

After seeing how similar life in each city really is in this picture book's illustrations, readers expect the children will soon adjust. At the back of the book is more information about places shown in each city.

This cheerfully illustrated picture book is likely to reassure any child facing a move to a new home, where things might only look different on the surface.
