When is a house not a house? When it’s a chateau, an airstream trailer, a yurt, or a cave dwelling!
These are just a few of the 15 different structures that serve as homes to children around the world, recreated in intricate detail in the bas-relief cut-paper collage illustrations by award-winning artist Giles Laroche.
The text explains why each house was built the way it was, where it can be found, what it was made from, and other fascinating facts. Dovetails nicely with the Montessori Needs of Humans lessons on shelter. Hardcover, 32 pages. Ages 6 and up.
