Recommended Posts

Our next topic is homes. Could anybody help me with any fiction books about homes or buildings.

I can only think of traditional stories like the 3 pigs.


Thanks very much

Wow! What a list! The only one I can contribute is an Usbourne book called Moving House. Can't remember the author, but it is basically about a family with children who move house. Will have a look for it and let you know the details if you want them.


Oh, and welcome to the forum from me too!

How about Alfie Gets in First by Shirley Hughes - maybe a bit long for the younger ones but our older children loved it - or One Snowy Night (Percy the Park Keeper series)?


There's this rhyme too:


Build a house with five bricks

One, two, three, four, five (Use clenched fists for bircks, putting one on top of the other five times)

Put a roof on top (Raise both arms above head with fingers touching)

And a chimney too (Straighten arms )

Where the wind blows through

WHOO WHOO (Blow hard or whistle)


(from This Little Puffin I think)!
