I love this book. Great photos and also really fantastic illustrations which allow kids to imagine what it is like to live in these various houses. I also think the focus on homes around the work helps kids really understand more about the various cultures than factual info, etc. I bought it for my 4 year old but, though she was interested, I would recommend for a five year old and up. My adult friends said they even wanted the book for themselves so I think it is pretty timeless.

Very interesting idea and the book uses some very detailed drawings to show the insides of the houses. I bought it specifically to look at one type of house I was researching (Hakka houses in China) but the others are all fun too and I imagine it would be fascinating for kids.

Shh, I bought it for myself 31 Mar. 2009
By J. Ycasas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Supposedly I bought this book just for a gift for someone's kid. Yes, the gift was given, but not before I enjoyed it a few times! Anyone who enjoys the diversity of living structures will enjoy the kid-centered tone, amenable to inspiring childlike wonder no matter what your age, of the descriptions of various habitats around the world, most of them "green". I've always loved kid-level technical drawings, as done here: hand-drawn, colorful illustrations of the different areas of a mudhouse, a round house, an underground house -- with people depicted living in them. May make your kid want to grow up to be an architect.

Excellent Book!!! 7 Aug. 2013
By Mama to 7 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an amazing book. I am very thrilled and pleased with it. Not only is it beautiful pictures of homes from around the world there are 2 page layout colored drawings of the inside with description of how the people live , sleep, eat, play, and study.
I never knew that in a part of China 300 people live in a round "apartment building". All the kitchens are on one level and bedrooms on another. Fascinating!
It's exciting to learn new things as an adult and to learn something from a child's book makes the learning even more so.
It is an excellent book I highly recommend. Every library and perhaps every home should have a copy of this wonderful book.
I am so glad I found this while looking here on Amazon for " houses" in children books.
It will be extremely exciting to read and go through this book with my dds ages 5.5 and 4.

A charming and educational little book 25 Nov. 2012
By Meaghan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is, I think, a very good book to educate elementary-age children about life (and architecture) in far-flung parts of the world. Each entry included photographs of the home, as well as a cross-section drawing and an explanation as to what each room was used for. (I was particularly intrigued by the home with an inverted funnel-shaped roof, which was used to collect rainwater in its dry desert surroundings.) I am an adult, and I learned a lot from this book, but I think it would be quite easy for the six-to-eight crowd to understand and enjoy.
