Influential artist Carson Ellis makes her solo picture-book debut with a whimsical tribute to the many possibilities of home. Home might be a house in the country, an apartment in the city, or even a shoe. Home may be on the road or the sea, in the realm of myth, or in the artist's own studio. A meditation on the concept of home and a visual treat that invites many return visits, this loving look at the places where people live marks the picture-book debut of Carson Ellis, acclaimed illustrator of the Wildwood series and artist for the indie band the Decemberists.

#SpringIntoReading Day 26: My gypsy heart has always been fascinated with the concept of home and how it is portrayed in picturebooks. Each gorgeous full-page spread is marked only by a sentence or two – very sparse, so brief, that one is able to focus more on the details of the art and the colours, the smokes and smells, the turrets and towers, the walls and woodworks. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-b2D

Lindy 👍A lovely picture book. I‘m also interested in the concept of home and of belonging. I plan to attend a poetry festival event on the topic tomorrow: http://edmontonpoetryfestival.com/schedule/the-story-of-home-with-arleen-pare 7mo

🏘 Carson Ellis‘ Home is a RF story about diversity. It shows the endless possibilities of what a home might look like with some more realistic and some fantasy renditions. This story would make a great RA to integrate social studies! Home would make a great hook to a geography lesson. It promotes diversity and belonging. #LAE3414sp19

ha_kaye The illustrations are so detailed and fun to look at, on one of the pages there are little refers to the homes from previous pages. This link has pre- and post reading questions. The questions in the exploring the text portion would make for great guided discussions or could be branched out into their own activity. http://classroom.walkerbooks.com.au/home/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Home-Classro... 7mo
ha_kaye UDL principle 3.2; highlight patters, critical features, big ideas, and relationship; works perfect with the repetition that this book has. EL strategy 20, list the most important words and phrases you use in your presentation, would be to go over the meaning of home before starting this book. 7mo
DrSpalding I am adding this to my stack. Your alignment with universal design and English learner strategies is spot on! 7mo

My #home is a townhouse in a tiny town in a rural area. Very close to highways, but tucked enough away off the beaten path that it could easily be missed. It‘s peaceful, for the most part, and gives me such a sense of accomplishment. This is my first home on my own - I lived with my parents for a little over thirty years, and it took me a long time to save up enough money. It was worth the wait! #gratitude30

LauraBeth That‘s a huge sense of accomplishment! 12mo
Librarybelle @LauraBeth ❤️❤️❤️ 12mo

MallenNC Good for you! You should be proud. I'm finally about to become a homeowner (fingers crossed) and it is exciting and scary. 12mo
Librarybelle @MallenNC It is a very exciting and scary time! Even though I‘ve had this place for four years, it still amazes me that I‘m a homeowner. I‘ll keep my fingers crossed for you! 🤞🤞 12mo
MallenNC @Librarybelle Thank you! I need the moral support. 12mo
erinreads My husband and I are looking to buy our first home next year and it‘s exciting g and terrifying! 😬 (Also, I‘m a turd and keep forgetting to bring the next #thebreakfastbookclub book to work to mail to you, but I promise to get it out in tomorrow‘s mail! I‘m so sorry it‘s so late! 😭) (edited) 12mo
Librarybelle @erinreads Good luck with the house hunt! It‘s exciting and terrifying, but so worth it in the end. And, no worries on the book...sadly, I probably won‘t get to it until December anyhow, so whenever you send it is fine! 12mo

Day 1 Home

I think sometimes we fail to notice the beauty of the areas closest to us.
This is my home, not as in my house, but a beautiful place in the town where I live🏡

Heather at Wild Rumpus in Minneapolis loves this book because "it's a gift you can give to anyone... It's the book I've given away the most." Especially good for people are moving. Home can be anywhere. #getindie

Beautiful...but a little dull.
