Overview

Byron Barton, the celebrated creator of numerous picture books for very young children, including Trucks, My Bus, and My Car, builds a house, step by step, right before your eyes!

A machine digs a big hole. A cement mixer pours cement. Carpenters put up walls. Bricklayers, electricians, plumbers, and painters do their part. Through brilliantly simple words and pictures a house is built.

"You can almost do it yourself by carefully noting the steps depicted in each bright, brisk, clearly delineated picture . . . With independently interesting pictures and a definite, sunny personality, a very fine piece of work indeed."—Kirkus Reviews

Named a Notable Book for Children by the American Library Association

My 3 year old LOVES this book, and so do I! It's very simple - text and pictures - yet realistic. We love looking at the pipes in the bathroom, the tools, the steps involved in building a home. My son is a Tools Guy, and this is absolutely perfect for the toddler and preschooler.

This is a wonderful yet simplistic book for young children; especially for families building a home. It is realistic and covers the process from beginning to end.
