Mixed-media collages depict the narrator's beloved home in all seasons. "The hidden details in the art will appeal to children, and the sophisticated approach may stretch their imaginations." said PW. Ages 3-7. (Sept.)
Children's Literature - Cheryl Peterson
The houses illustrated in this book are made up of a variety of collage images which gives this simple story a magical quality. "My house wakes up at daybreak..." is illustrated by a house composed of a sunrise above a mountain, and a chicken walking up the front path. The seasons show the house composed of fall leaves, snow, spring flowers, and dry grass. It ends with a house dark and quiet in the starry night and "filled with dreams." A perfect bedtime story for young children. It might be interesting to extend this story in the classroom with children creating collages of their own homes.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Not just another concept book, My House is quite different and very refreshing. Desimini uses collages, photographs, and paints to depict a house during different times of day, throughout the seasons, and in various weather conditions. Each colorful illustration reflects not just a change in light, but in effect creates an entirely new mood. Children will have fun finding cleverly placed objects on several pages-the sneaker in the fall leaves, the sandals on the sidewalk, and the ``flying'' fish on a windy day. The brief, deceptively simple text reads aloud beautifully, but it is, ultimately, the wonderful artwork that makes this title a winner.-Denise Furgione, Atlantic County Library, Mays Landing, NJ
