    One thought on “Take Shelter: At Home Around the World”

    1. 1. While reading this book I had a text to text connection. There are many books that describe different homes from around the world. I remember reading some of them when I was younger. What I loved about this book was the fact that along with a real photograph of the home, there were paragraphs describing how and why the homes are built the way they are. Some of the books on home just listed what they were called but didn't give any further information. This book went beyond that.2. This book i [...]

    2. I really like this series, Orca Footprints -- in it's around the world glory, in the great pictures, the simple (ish) text, and the subject matter of living a more green life and thinking of the world as a global community.

    3. Many children live in homes around the world that look very different from each other and also may be considered non-traditional in comparison to most homes in the Western World.

    4. While there's no place like home, often the homes we live in are quite different from one another, as this nifty book shows.

It's mind blowing to note all the possibilities for human shelters, including storm drain tunnels beneath Las Vegas, homes with collapsible walls and folding fu [...]

    5. This is an AMAZING book for readers of all ages!! As an adult, I happily observed the stunning photographs, and devoured the fascinating information about unique homes around the world. I appreciated the focus on diversity, and the respect given to people who are poor or may live in less fortunate nations. This is an important read for children and adults alike as there is a focus on making homes and cities more environmentally friendly. I felt inspired after I finished reading this book!

    6. My husband has his masters in historic preservation and since I helped him study I feel I got one too. But I learned a lot from this book!
