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.
Specially created to support early years teaching, this beautiful new words and pictures book is perfect for children learning to read. As young readers turn the pages, they will have lots of opportunities to: understand similarities and differences between themselves and others, and among families, communities, and traditions; understand feelings; be sensitive to others’ needs; explore behavior and consequences.
