Description

Take your students on a world tour with this clever expansion of a universal concept. In twenty different countries, children show off their homes, which include a cave in Turkey, a yurt in Mongolia, and a boat in Thailand. Simple text helps explain how and why people choose to find shelters the way they do, and considerations such as lifestyle, climate, and available materials are all explored.

Arthur Dorros is the author of many acclaimed nonfiction picture books, and this engaging, useful overview lives up to his high standard. His bright watercolors are full of details to fascinate readers, who will learn much about local customs and landscape by poring over each illustration. Offering readers a chance to connect with their international counterparts, he translates the phrase "This is my house" into each local language, along with a phonetic transliteration. Classroom uses are myriad: students can be encouraged to delve further into the culture of their choice, or come full circle and discuss alternative homes where they themselves have spent a night or two, such as a campsite, a relative's house, a trailer, or a car.
