Synopsis: 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
