Ladybug Nominee Profile

If I Built a House by Chris Van Dusen is a fabulous vision of what a house could be if you built it yourself. Each room is specially designed to provide both fun and function. My favorite is the "all-in-one Kitchen-o-mat" 
You don't have to cook and you don't have to clean,
It's done by a space-age robotic machine.
It makes all the meals and the food is deeelish,

Then it washes and puts away every last dish.
School-aged readers may prefer the Racetrack Room, the Flying Room, or the Fish Tank Room.
If you are looking for a house designing activity to go with this book check out the PBS Kids Lab Build Me a House project, or Kinderart lessons on architecture, or archKIDecture

This book recieved the 2013 NEIBA Children’s Book Award presented by The New England Independent Booksellers Association.

This is one of the ten titles nominated for the 2014 Ladybug Picture Book Award. Chris Van Dusen's The Circus Ship was nominated for a Ladybug Award in 2010.
