How a House Is Built
fullDescription
Houses are built with many different materials, and in many shapes and sizes. 

Step by step, this picture book explains how homes are built—from the architect's plans through the arrival of a happy family.  The many processes of construction are explained with simple language and bright, clear illustrations, perfect for kids starting to wonder about how the world around them works.

Many different careers—including carpenters, plumbers, electricians, and landscapers—are introduced, each doing their part to bring the picture wood-frame house to life.  A great read for kids who love construction sites, or who can't get enough of Building a House by Byron Barton.

According to The Washington Post, Gail Gibbons "has taught more preschoolers and early readers about the world than any other children's writer-illustrator."  Ms. Gibbons is the author of more than 100 books for young readers, including the bestselling titles From Seed to Plant and Monarch Butterfly.  Her many honors include the Washington Post/Childrens Book Fuild Nonfiction Award and the NSTA Outstanding Science Trade Book Award.
