Jonathan Bean (FSG/Macmillan 2013)(ages 4+). A girl and her family live in a trailer while they build their new house. An informative text and fun, yet detailed, illustrations take the reader through the year-and-a-half long project.
Altogether, BUILDING OUR HOUSE is a terrific look at construction and tools and what makes -- and how to make -- the buildings we live in. Check out the Macmillan web page for an activity guide and interior illustrations.
