This House, Once by Deborah Freedman
This house, once
by Deborah Freedman
published by Atheneum Books for Young Readers
February 28th

I'm already a big fan of Freedman's work:

The Story of Fish and Snail     By Mouse and Frog     Shy

I think this one is her most brilliant to date.  Gorgeous, simple and timeless.

Goodreads summary:
Deborah Freedman’s masterful new picture book is at once an introduction to the pieces of a house, a cozy story to share and explore, and a dreamy meditation on the magic of our homes and our world.

Before there was this house,
there were stones,
and mud,
and a colossal oak tree—
three hugs around
and as high as the blue.

What was your home, once?

This poetically simple, thought-provoking, and gorgeously illustrated book invites readers to think about where things come from and what nature provides.

What a gorgeous book to talk about:

  • families
  • where we come from
  • our homes, and what makes them a home
  • our family memories
  • how nature provides for us
Be sure to check this book out on February 28th.
