Gail Gibbons uses clear, simple wording to present all the steps involved in building a house. From the architect who draws the plans, through the various types of workers who construct it, to the family who will make the house their home, each aspect is explained. Children can easily follow along as construction begins at the ground level with surveyors, describing the jobs of carpenters and plumbers. The many tools used to complete each task are explained, ultimately showing how all the workers' efforts come together to build a whole house from basement to roof, both inside and outside.

Gail Gibbons books are some of our favorites. This one is no different. They are very informative without being too technical for children and are beautifully illustrated. The narration by Jon Bennett is just perfect. It has clear pronunciation with good pacing.
