This book is so good!! The illustration are beautiful and very attractive for young children. It's strange to say but they look soft, calm. We follow a young boy who visit different type of home. There is more or less a story, but a very deep and important message about the importance of love and family over material «needs». Really positive message in this one and I think it deserve a lot of attention. So check it out!! ...more

Children's picture book about a boy and various types of homes, from apartments to igloos, to mobile homes, and more, HOME (September 1 2018) explores a child's view of what it means to belong.

How can I not love a tender tale of a boy and his quest to find the most perfect home?

HOME is a gentle reminder about the power of the individuals that fill a home, not the place or the structure--which can vary from location to location, family to family.

Told in simple, flowing language and accompanied

I don't make a habit of reading or reviewing children's books, but once in a while an invitation to do so comes along and I shrug and agree. It's nice to read something simple once in a while, you know?

This is an extremely simple book. Each two-page spread has just a few pages of text, and the rest of the paper is taken up with illistrations. We see the boy exploring a large variety of different homes, from a big mansion to a

A simple tale with decent pastel artwork, where a young child surveys the world's variety of houses, only to realise it's a home you need, regardless of the actual structure. The artwork doesn't exactly match the description of his "small, small apartment", but it's well done. I might have rated it more highly had I not seen a more non-fiction-styled approach to the same sentiment a couple of months back. Three and a half stars. ...more

“Writing is so fulfilling and gratifying and each book I consider another child. But it is a slow, difficult, and even lonely path to success, so do not do it for money. Do it because you want to help others by telling your story or because you have a compelling story that you need to get out there and will love telling.” 0 likes
