Did you know people can actually build their own houses? And I don't mean telling other workers what kind of house you want. I mean actually laying the foundation, building the walls and putting on the roof! Building Our House by Jonathan Bean is the story of a family who does ALL the work themselves. They spend over a year working together to build their cozy country home.
This summer we are Building at Better World through the summer reading club. Learning how to build a better house seems like a good place to start.
