Houses are built with many different materials, and in many shapes and sizes. Here the building of a wood frame house, from its concept to the planting of a final bush, is described. An architect draws plans, a foundation is laid, the concrete floor of the basement is poured. Carpenters, plumbers, masons, electricians, painters, landscapers, and others all do their work in a certain order, until finally the house is ready to become a home.
Gail Gibbons "has taught more preschoolers and early readers about the world than any other children's writer-illustrator," according to the Washington Post. Winner of the 2010 Regina Award, she has written and illustrated more than fifty books for Holiday House. She lives in Corinth, Vermont.
