9781609051891: How Things Work in the House

In How Things Work in the House, Lisa Campbell Ernst delves into how common household objects--such as soap, scissors and house keys--work. The detailed, but easy-to-understand, language describes the functioning of everyday items, and Ernst's meticulous and cleverly labeled pictures are fascinating. How Things Work in the House is a marvelous companion to the much-praised How Things Work Around the Yard. It also stands on its own as kid-compelling non-fiction.

Review:

Praise for How Things Work in the Yard:
"Ernst's layouts achieve an artfully composed balance, offering plenty to interest young readers without confusing them." --The New York Times

"There's a playful aesthetic in evidence, from the bright palette and friendly cut-paper artwork to the innate humor in some of the questions themselves ("How does a squirrel work?")... It's an elegantly designed primer to the natural world." -- Publishers Weekly

"Best of all, this unpretentious guidebook encourages curiosity and conversations about science."
--School Library Journal
