We're Moving Today A Moving Story. Another beautifully illustrated picture book written by author James R. Thomas. Come join the adventure with a family that is moving to a new house and see how they work together through their journey. The author uses rhymes to make the story fun and humorous to help the reader understand the moving process. When my family gets into the car, I have to hold my pet fish, Max, in a jar. I'm hoping the road trip won't be too far. Away we go, as we travel down the road, with a full carload. There may be some bumps along the way, but nothing my family can't handle this day.
