Building Our House (Compact Disc)
Winter 2012 Kids Next List
“It's not unusual to move from the city to the country, but this little girl's family is moving to an empty, weedy field. Soon they settle into a trailer, their 'house on wheels,' where they live for a year and a half while they construct their new house. New experiences like having a frame-raising party with all their relatives make the long process into an exciting adventure. With charming illustrations and engaging text, Bean recreates his own childhood experience.”
— Heidi Powell, Politics & Prose Books and Coffee Shop, Washington, DC
