About this title


A family moves to a beautiful place in the country and builds a new house to start their new life

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- A family moves from their city apartment to the country, where they build a new home. The young daughter describes the land with its peach trees, birches, blackberry bushes, and beaver dam. Next comes construction of their home from foundation to finished product. The book is designed to resemble a family album. Each page of text is a different muted hue complementing the full-page pastel illustration. Unfortunately, the illustrations are, for the most part, uninspired and, more importantly, don't reflect the text. When it says, "my uncles piled rocks--flat, round, and squarish--in rows to make a foundation," the picture shows two male figures from the waist up, standing perfectly still, side by side, in front of what is supposed to be three or four rocks piled up. This lack of continuity is pervasive throughout the book. Quiet, gentle reminiscences told in descriptive prose take the place of a real story and static, snapshot-like drawings will leave audiences wanting more. --Janet DiGianni, North Andover High School, MA

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
