What makes a home? Author/illustrator Carson Ellis shows how they come in all kinds of shapes, sizes, materials, and locations in Home.

As well as the expected house in the country, apartment, houseboat and so on, we see a palace with a treasure trove cave underneath it; the nursery rhyme old woman's shoe home; and various mythical homes. There are also invented homes that challenge the young reader to imagine what sort of folk might live in them.

Explore this charming picture book in depth with a youngster and encourage them to think aloud about all the possibilities of this class of places and what home really means.
