If You Lived Here: Houses Around the World BSW1223


This book explores typical houses from different time periods and different countries around the world. Readers will learn about architectural styles and geography. Laroche leads his readers through a world tour of homes describing what it would be like “If you lived here.” The fifteen indigenous houses featured in this nonfiction picture book originated from different eras and cultures, but are still in existence today.

The wide range of house types represented includes a French Chateau, a modern day cave dwelling in Spain, a Fujian Tulou (earthen dwelling) in China, a dogtrot log cabin in the Southern United States, and a decorated house of Ndebele in South Africa. The homes are portrayed through precise cut-paper illustrations accompanied by a descriptive passage about living in each house.
