    This is so DETAILED and doesn t water anything down for the kiddos It s every step of building a wood framed house from hiring a general contractor to placing sheetrock to running electrical wires to move in day Frankly, it bores me to tears, but Small Fry adores it He s either going to take over the world one day or be an engineer

    Honesty time here I had no idea how a house is actually built So, yeah This was an educational book for me And with hubby and I thinking about having a house built, it s a perfect time for me to have read this It s a simple book, but it does a wonderful job of covering all the basics Not the most exciting read, so probably not the best for a read aloud, but it s an excellent choice for kids or adults who want an introduction to house building One thing to note this is clearly a home out in the country Not only are there no other homes in site, but they talk about putting in a septic system, which would not apply in my heavily urban area Not a fault at all, just an observation.

    I don t believe that I would read this out loud to the class It s rather long and would probably lose some interest in a few students However, I could keep this for those students that struggle to read but like to build things I could also read a few pages out of the book to the class and then do an activity where they draw their own houses I also really like the end of the book where it goes over houses from the past.

    Books in the block area Yes please After discussing how imperative it is to integrate literacy instruction into other areas of the classroom, other than the library, I was elated to include this as a precursor to building our own block house For an older group of children I would have them label the parts with the assistance of a word word We could discuss how important it is for each part of the house to be in tact and for each person to play their role follow up building a classroom house out of popsicle sticks and other materials.
