Butterworth and Gaggiotti (Where Did My Clothes Come From? 2015) team up for another informational picture book, this time exploring the inner workings of a single-family house…the engaging combination of text and illustration is sure to appeal to curious readers. A darling introduction to the engineered amenities that help make a house a home.
Gaggiotti’s lively, retro-style illustrations aptly complement Butterworth’s educational narrative. The book closes with examples of ways kids can actively do their part to save energy. An ideal book for inquisitive minds.
Butterworth packs a great deal of information into an inviting format…this work presents a great way to assist little ones in understanding the larger world. A recommended purchase for individual sharing that is also a great opener for group lessons on everyday technology.
