Building Our House

Jonathan Bean

A little girl narrates the building of their new family home, complete with detailed plans and the contributions of each family member. Mom and Dad purchase land away from the city and they all move into a trailer on the property while the house is being built. Filled with construction details and warm family camaraderie, this tale is based on the author’s childhood memories. Muted watercolor illustrations capture the specifics of construction as well as the cozy family atmosphere. Ages 5-7
