Do you know a child with an imaginary friend (who most often “appears” when the child is nervous or scared)? This colorful picture book about a little girl and her friend Stella would be a welcome read. Bella moves into a new house where everything is different and nothing feels like home. But with her imaginary friend Stella by her side, she gradually becomes more comfortable in the new place—and even makes a new friend. A very charming read.
After Bella says good-bye to her old house, it's time to meet her new one. But this house isn't anything like Bella expected. The entranceway has ten steps instead of three, the bathtub has feet, and worst of all, it does not feel like home. But Bella knows how to be brave, and with her imaginary best friend Stella by her side, it doesn't take long for her feelings about her new house to change-especially when she spies a next-door neighbor who looks like he'd make a perfect new friend.
