When Mama tells Jamela about her new job and a new place for them to live, Mama is excited but Jamela isn't. She likes so many things about the house they live in now -- the squeaky front gate she swings on, the view from her window, the neighborhood sounds and smells. But on moving day Jamela is ready to help -- although none of the grownups are prepared for the silly mixup caused by her "helping."
The ensuing fun helps smooth the transition from old to new in this colorful township tale about a little girl's moving-away woes that will comfort and encourage anyone who has had to learn to sleep in a new room.
