This resulted in On Their Toes (Atheneum), followed by Dancing to America (Dutton), photographed by Paul Kolnik.

Ann Morris, Ken Heyman (Illustrator). Plot: Houses and Homes is a tribute to the diversity of houses and human ingenuity around the world. My response to the book: Houses from around the world made of a variation of materials, houseboats, tents, and homes made by women.

Ann Morris, Ken Heyman (Illustrator). It compares and contrasts various living structures across the globe and provides lovely photographs of each. The book exposes the reader to the way other cultures live, while getting them to appreicate and give thought to their own homes. There are also a couple of grand homes: Buckingham Palace and The White House.

I loved this book! I bought it for a study we were doing in my preschool classroom on buildings. It was a great book that sparked a lot of discussions about what life is like in different places. It is also a book that uses real pictures which my kiddos had never seen before. My only warning is that there is one picture of a little boy laying down on the grass and you see a full bum shot! I just took a black sharpe and drew shorts on him. You couldn't tell at all.

Not what I expected at all. The pages don't say much about anything and has very few words. You have to go to the index to even find out where the house is from. I would not recommend.

Very simple and to the point. Not in a bad way but the pictures show what homes look like around the world. Great for just reference or to add to a study of culture.

My son enjoys reading this book. There are just a few words on each page, and the pictures are large and mostly colorful. I think it is a great introduction to learning more about the world.

Updated November 2013- I now have a daughter and she loves this book too. Even though there is not much of a story-line, this book has stayed in my kids collection because the photos are conversation starters and my kids and I talk about something different every time we read it. Just wonderful and well worth the price.

I bought this for a book exchange. The theme was anything international or of a different culture. The age group was 1st and 2nd graders. I thought the book was beautiful until I happened upon the couple pages of kids with bare butts. Obviously, this is the kids in their natural setting and my own 1st grader was fine with it (after she giggled awhile) however the boys at school went absolutely bonkers. I felt like "that parent" who brought the naked book. So just be warned.....naked little boy butts in this book.....otherwise very interesting!

While the text of the book is not particularly inspiring, it is an introduction to the different ways some people live around the world. My daughter is not yet two but she loves Ann Morris' entire series of books and likes to identify things in each photograph. We use the books to discuss differences and similarities between how we and others live. The photos are obviously dated but I don't believe that alters the impact of what the author and photographer are trying to do. As she grows, we intend to continue to read these books, moving on from identifying simple items to talking about cultures, traditions, environments, geography, and etc. The back of each book contains a map and descriptions of locations/actions for each page and will allow us to talk about where places are in relation to one another. I recommend these books for curious children starting at age 18 months and all the way up into the school years.
Great book for constructing preschoolers, while exposing them to other cultures and diversity.
