Imagine a House: A Journey to Fascinating Houses Around the World

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Gr 2-5-Readers are introduced to the world outside their community by looking at some unique styles of housing from around the world. Just as in the United States, one type of structure does not represent all of the architecture found in a particular country, but those included are representative of the creativeness of people no matter where they live. The 12 different domiciles included here were chosen for the stories they tell. Children may be amazed to know that igloos are found in Eritrea, Africa as well as in the Arctic regions, or that adobe homes can be found both in the Americas and in Northern Africa. The layout has definite child appeal. Each spread includes sketches of the featured types of dwellings, a world map identifying where they are located, full-color photographs with captions, and short commentary providing basic information. On a blank page, readers are asked to draw and describe their own residences. Biographical sketches of the photographers appear near the end of the book. Imagine a House is a great way to encourage readers to look beyond their immediate world and continue their journey of discovery.-Margaret R.
