Editorial Reviews

Review

“The expert use of light and dark creates beautiful, emotional contrasts of warmth and isolation—a wonderful match of both verbal and visual tone…Heartfelt and filled with possible connections for families.” Kirkus Reviews

“Sleekly rendered acrylic and colored pencil art…casts the house’s interior in rich chiaroscuro…in this familiar narrative of being left behind and learning to love again.” Publishers Weekly

From the Publisher

Home is where the heart is. While that phrase usually speaks to human feelings, in this lovely picture book, the sentiment takes on new meaning as a house reveals its own heart to the reader. By turns, the house feels joy, tenderness, and sorrow as its first family moves in, grows, and moves away. But the heart is a funny thing, and hope—and eventually love—prevail as a brand-new family arrives.

The house experiences a gamut of emotions, and I love the way the text and art gently evoke these and that a couple of different types of families are represented—one with a mother and father and their children and one with two dads and their daughter. I hope the little ones in your life enjoy this tale of a home’s heart.

—Kelsey Skea, Editor

4.0 out of 5 stars Kids Don't Judge
By Trippet on October 1, 2021
There's nothing in this book to hurt anyone. Yep, the story ends with a not straight couple, but there is no narrative being pushed. It's a book about love and and letting someone into your life after experiencing loss. There's no explanation about the couple and most kiddos aren't even going to notice or care. By all means, if you're absolutely anti-LGBTQ then skip this, but if you're "live and let live" (the majority of us) or are pro-LGBTQ, go for it.

I was hopeful this would be reminiscent of my favorite children's book, "The Giving Tree." It was not - the tree and the house have completely different situations and takes on their loss, but it's still in the same genre of love, loss, love.

I enjoyed the book and I think children will begin to see their living quarters as more magical after being read / reading this book. Heck, they may even Respect their home a bit more than they do currently. Who knows where childrens' minds will end up!

The illustrations are lovely and well-drawn. The story is relatable to anyone who's moved and could even be used to help explain loss, grief, and recovery if the perspective of the house is turned inward. It's a sweet story and a quick read. It introduces words like "swoon" and "bustle" and even some construction terms so upvote for new vocabulary! I'd say this is for advanced readers due to the vocabulary. The words can be sounded out, but the meaning may be lost on younger readers.

There are two technical issues with the text (one is pictured) that need to be corrected. The second one I was able to figure out, but the pictured example is too garbled.
