NEW Kids Picture Books: Day 13

The House That's Your Home by Sally Lloyd-Jones. February 2015.

From Amazon: "Like the bestselling title On the Night You Were Born by Nancy Tillman, this picture book is sure to touch the hearts of parents, grandparents, and children. The tender rhythmic text follows a young girl as she moves through her world, while utterly charming watercolors bring that world into vivid focus.

Told in second person, as if written by a parent to a child, the story gently highlights all the love and joy that make the girl's world her very own, from the tree that stands in her yard, to the swing that swings her right up to the sky, to her bed that's a ship to the moon. A beautiful ode to a loving family from a bestselling author and illustrator."

My thoughts: This book reads as a beautiful, rhythmic bedtime story that would make my husband gag. ;-) The text doesn't rhyme, but it still reads like a poem - sort of like the lilting lines of The House That Jack Built. Kids will enjoy the references to ordinary things that they see everyday, and can spend lots of time looking at the beautiful illustrations.

Recommended Age: 3-7 years
