OverviewA house is a place for shelter and rest, a place for playing and working, and a place for a family to live and love. But a house in Thailand looks nothing like a house in Mongolia, and the houses in Togo don't look like the houses in Russia. In each place, the people build their houses to accommodate climate, customs, and lifestyles, and end up with homes that vary in many ways. Readers will learn about houses all over the world, and delight in both their similarities and differences. Friendly diagrams with bite-sized explanations of why certain features appear in the houses make this an interactive book with high kid appeal.
