Based on the author’s experience, this fictionalized picture book tells the story of a family building their house from the ground up while they live in a small trailer for a year and a half

"Today is moving day. We left our old house in the city and are moving to the country..."

A girl narrates this story of her family moving to the country and building a house from scratch, while they live in a "small home on wheels" in a field. The girl and her little brother help their parents as much as they're able, and meanwhile their mom grows and gives birth to a third child.

Seasons pass as the house frame goes up, with chimney, roof, siding, and windows; then plumbing, wiring, insulation, wallboard, painting, and light fixtures. At last there is a "moving party," and the family of five spends their first night in their new house.

Back matter: an Author's Note explains that the book is based on his parents' experience of buying a field and living in a small house on wheels while building a house for their family - which, in real life, took five years, during which time his parents had three children. Photographs are included.

A little girl explains the process of her parents who are building their own house. Lots of big machines for kids who love that. Shows the value of hard work. ( )

Great book! Watch how a family picks up and moves to the country to build a house themselves while living on site. Very educational and it's based on a true story of a family who did this. Nice illustrations as well.

This cozy picture book shows the year-and-a-half long construction process involved in building a house, from moving into a trailer to live until the house is done, picking out the site, consulting the blueprints, digging the basement, raising the frame, and working in all types of weather. Mom and Dad both work on the house while the children play and “help”. This is a realistic picture of how much work and planning it takes to construct a house. Illustrations are realistic, sweet and cozy and include lots of tools and machines. The final illustration is my favorite: a very tired family sitting on the couch reading to their children (and cat) on the first night in their new home. This book is based on the author’s experience of his parents building their house when he was a child.
