If you Live Here -Houses of the World by Giles Laroche –ADVISABLE
This picture book offers a selection of home styles from around the world. From dwellings like log cabins, to Chalets to Pueblo’s. It features stunning collage illustrations and a large informational component.
This book does a great job to help pull students out of the typical egocentric world view by showing them a variety of world homes. The wording is well designed to draw a child in. There are also interesting tidbits and facts, including a map. Might be useful for cultural curriculum connections.
