This Is Our House by Michael RosenDidactic as they come, and I really didn’t like the text used in the last three pages of the story for that reason.
Yet, this is still an appealing book. I read it because of Bob Graham’s illustrations, which I love. I enjoyed the ones in this book too. I think they’re earlier than many I’ve seen but they have that trademark look of this illustrator.
This would be a good book for group discussions about sharing, exclusion, and discrimination. I did like the idea of it.
And, the joy of having a house made from an old box is one I remember fondly.
In the author and illustrator bio section, I do appreciate how the author spells out the message he is trying to impart, and why. And I love how the illustrator set the story in a playground that’s “a suggestion of hope” in an area of “bleak public housing buildings” and how he reveals he used to live in such a setting.
