SOMEBODY'S HOUSE by Edith Thacher Hurd

Email this review


We have yet to see a child who doesn't get all excited at the whole process of house building- watching the foundations laid, running over floor frames, digging into putty left by friendly workmen. Here's a book to recapture the urge. Jimmy, Jenny and their parents get a new house in the country and have a warming time indeed as all the stages are accomplished. Fine to read aloud or for older brothers and sisters who know something about construction. Action and detail ring the rafters in Clement Hurd's drawings.
