Gwynne, Carrie. Pack Up/Moving In.

Gwynne, Carrie.  Pack Up/Moving In.  Saddleback  2016  62p  $9.95  ISBN 978-1-68021-042-2  Series: Lifeskills in Action  hs/adult  Hi-Lo  VG-BN 

The LifeSkills in Action series is aimed at low readers who need some practical advice about everyday life management. In this slim volume, we get two books in one.  The first is a story about two sisters who are planning a move, highlighting the steps that go into a well-executed move to a new apartment in a new city. One sister is practical and detail-oriented, and the other is haphazard in her approach to planning and carrying out the move. The other half of the book, entitled Moving In, lists all the things one should consider when making a move, with key words in bold face.  Both halves of the book would be well suited to a life-skills class in a high school, as well as to a student with high-low reading needs.     

Summary: This is two books in one: a how-to on moving, and a story of two sisters who make a move to a new apartment. The format works nicely for a life-skills class, and it is written at a high-low level as well.
