Illustrated by Betty Fraser. Filled with hundreds of meticulously drawn everyday objects presented in delightfully unexpected ways, the book itself is a house for the reader's imagination.

Illustrated by Betty Fraser. In lilting, rhythmic verse, this modern classic describes all kinds of houses - some familiar, some surprising - but at the same time does much more. Winner of a National Book Award, it was the first collaboration between Hoberman and Fraser.

Mary Ann Hoberman lives in Greenwich, Connecticut. Betty Fraser lives in New York City. Plus existential questions of what is a "house", can't get better. Great jumping off point for discussing ideas about "houses" everywhere in the world. One person found this helpful.

SOFT COVER
  • This book is great. My 3 year old loves it! After reading it, he always comes up with new examples of things that house things. Really gets him thinking. I highly recommend it.

  • A house is a house for a mole or a mouse...and a house is a house for me. Best kids book ever! I wish they would still sell it hard bound. It's like everyone affects everyone else and we all just want a nice home no matter what or who we are. Gotta have it! (But I'd search out a hardbound copy on Ebay if I were you. The soft bound really looses something. Even people who absolutely cannot stand "Where's Waldo" will like the complex pictures!

  • My favorite children's book growing up. I was surprised it was a good inch larger than my original hardback version. Made it even easier to see all the intricate detail going on in the illustrations.

  • Detailed drawings, original, mind-expanding book for kids. I would not be surprised if even older children are curious enough to read this book just from browsing through the pages. The cover engages and the rest of the book lives up to its promise.

  • A wonderful book recommended by a friend. It helps kids think about things in a holistic way. Great illustrations and just the right amount of text for a young child being read a bedtime story.

  • My kids really enjoy this book and after reading it, they compare things around our house to houses for things like the author does. At first they didn't want to read the book but after reading it, they really enjoy it and have asked to read it multiple times. My 6 year old son especially loves it.

  • My favorite new book to read to my 4 year old. And he loves it too! Fun to read. Cool drawings. Plus existential questions of what is a "house", can't get better. Great jumping off point for discussing ideas about "houses" everywhere in the world.

  • We loved this book when my children were young and can almost recite its wonderful poem by heart. With its whimsical lines and beautiful drawings, it teaches a wonderful lesson, that everything has a special place where it belongs.
