    I don’t believe that I would read this out loud to the class. It’s rather long and would probably lose some interest in a few students. However, I could keep this for those students that struggle to read but like to build things. I could also read a few pages out of the book to the class and then do an activity where they draw their own houses. I also really like the end of the book where it goes over houses from the past.

    Books in the block area? Yes please! After discussing how imperative it is to integrate literacy instruction into other areas of the classroom, other than the library, I was elated to include this as a precursor to building our own block house. For an older group of children I would have them label the parts with the assistance of a word word. We could discuss how important it is for each part of the house to be in tact and for each person to play their role & follow up building a classroom house out of popsicle sticks and other materials.

    Gibbons, G. How a House Is Built. New York: Scholastic Inc (1990).This picture book is a non-fiction book for children. It explains to children how to build a house and introduces may different vocabulary words of the tools that are used to build a house.The reading level is ages 3-7, but a younger student might not have as much interest in the book as an older student would. This picture book can be a useful tool to have sitting out in preschool classrooms if setting out a play area where children can pretend to be construction workers.

    My kids loved this book and begged me not to return it to the library. It has nice illustrations and simply describes the process of building a house from the ground up. I have found that my children really enjoy learning about the world and how things work; even things that may seem boring to and adult really fascinate them.

    Age range: 5-8Literacy skill: vocabulary, print awarenessThis is a great book for kids who want to learn about each step of building a house. Accurate vocabulary words are used and explained in developmentally appropriate language. I read this with student who was watching a house being built on the lot next to his home. He was excited to identify each stage in the building of the house.

    When a preschooler asks for a book about how a house it built, this title delivers. Describes all steps of the house-building process from hiring the contractor, laying the foundation, raising the walls to landscaping.

    My new favorite author for informational picture books. The big text is usually suited to readaloud. The small tidbits can be left during a group reading and devoured by individual kids.

    Detailed descriptions and clear illustrations of how a house is built. Highly recommended for young fans of Bob the Builder, or just curious little boys.
