Find @ your library in WorldCat

I felt inspired to make this simple Easy Shapes House or Home Craft by this book. You can listen to a reading in YouTube.

The back cover has an excerpt of the first page:

"A square is just a square,
Until you add a roof,
two windows and a door,
then it's much, much more."

The illustrations are childlike and very appealing to the young and the young at heart.

The illustrator, Julie Lacome comments: "For the borders of each page," she says, " I used potato-cut printing, as children do in school--that was the most fun!

Look for this title at your library, the children will love it and it will help get them excited about doing the house craft theme activities.
