House Is a House for Me
By Mary Ann Hoberman
According to Mary Ann, people aren't the only ones that live in houses.
She rhymes her way through ants in anthills, bees in hives, spiders in webs
and bugs in a rug. But she doesn't stop with insects. She
declares a garage to be a house for a car, a dock a house for a ship, a husk
a house for an ear of corn and a shell a house for a nut. Children
learn about, not only homes, but body parts, foods, animals, clothing and
fun hiding places. The illustrations give further understanding to
preschoolers as they are introduced to lots of new words. This great
book can be extended into hands-on learning at home or school by a house
hunt right where they live.
