When we think of home, we might think of living in an apartment or a house, but not everyone lives in a home like this. Some children grow up on a houseboat in a floating village. Others live in huts that are carefully crafted from branches and animal dung. And many children live in makeshift tent homes in refugee camps. In A Place to Call Home, young readers will learn about the many different types of structures and places that children and their families call home.
