Beautiful 1st edition children's book. Book is in good condition with a dust jacket, and a protective mylar cover over the dust jacket. It is a prior library book purchased from a library sale. The last page does have a tear in it. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: One humble house tells its own intriguing history.
Today, big houses surround me, up
and down my street. When I was
built, the Fairchilds were the only
people around for miles and miles.
Standing strong and proud, a trusty old farmhouse reflects on its beginnings, remembering the Fairchild family who built it more than two hundred years ago and comparing what life was like then to the bustling world of the Gray family, its present dwellers.
With rich historical detail and warm affirmation of both past and present, When I Was Built celebrates continuity and change, as it conveys the welcoming spirit that makes a house a much-loved home.
About the Author:
Jennifer Thermes and her family live in a one-and-a-half-story home built around 1720, once owned by the poet Louis Untermeyer. A freelance illustrator and designer, Jennifer lives in Newtown, Connecticut. This is her first children's book.
