    1 thought on “Let's Go Home: The Wonderful Things About a House

    1. I loved this book! Mostly for the pictures, but the text is very sweet, too. By the time I was finished reading, I wanted to go visit the home and the people who live there; explore the cluttered attic full of memories, smell the lavender soap in the bathroom, make cookies in the kitchen, sip coffee snuggled up on the living room sofa sit on the porch and daydream. Of course, part of the charm for me may be that I love looking at other people's homes; it's fun to see new neighborhoods and the ar [...]

    2. This book has wonderful cozy illustrations of a home. But this book presents a very narrow imagining of what a home should be. The first page shows all different kinds of homes from around the world, but it precedes to tell you about one kind of home, an upper middle class American home. This level of idealism would be hard to compete with even if you were raised in the happiest of homes.

    3. I'm tremendously enjoying this journey through children's illustrated books. Cynthia Rylant, another Newbery award winner for Missing May, has published many lovely children's books. This one is wonderful! While each page is packed with details that could at first seem overwhelming, when I took time to slowly study the images, I was in awe of the lovely details.With the talent of a seasoned writer and illustrated by Wendy Anderson Halperin this team is a winning combination.This is a journey thr [...]

    4. Cynthia Rylant is one of my favorite Children's authors. She has a lovely writing style, and her stories are familiar and comforting. This is one of our favorites - the illustrations and amazingly fun and detailed.

    5. One more Cynthia Rylant book that I just love! She writes about each room in a house and why each one is wonderful. She shows that it's not really about the house, but the living that goes on inside that makes it special.

    6. A fun book to help little ones learn the different rooms of a house. The pictures should also intrigue readers who like to peruse every detail of the illustrations. I was also pleased at the numerous references to dogs and cats;)

    7. This is a sweet, idealistic book about the different rooms in a home. The tone of the story was pleasant. Really enjoyed the illustrations.

    8. We are big fans of Cynthia Rylant's books and when I saw the cover of this book, it reminded me strongly of her collaboration with Wendy Anderson Halperin on the Cobble Street Cousins series. The story is short and the setting is very quaint. I loved the depictions of the house, but I have to admit that I've never seen any home quite like that. Still, it does show that it's the love, togetherness and people inside the home that make it wonderful, not the possessions or the size of it. I always w [...]

    9. This book shows that there are many types of houses. No matter which type of house it is; it’s what’s inside that makes it a home. These houses have porches, living rooms, kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms and attics. Living rooms and kitchens bring the family together. Bathrooms are interesting you can find out a lot about a person by what you find in their bathroom. Bedrooms keep us sheltered and give us a place where we are allowed to dream. While attics hold our memories from the past. I rea [...]

    10. I would give this book two and a half stars. The illustrations of this unique, wonderful house are like nothing that I have seen in picture book literature. Cynthia Rylant's vibrant prose brings these intriguing images to clear, vivid life, taking us by the hand and lovingly showing what REALLY makes such a house so wonderful. Perceptive words dot the text throughout and make this into one of the better picture books that I have read. "Let's Go Home" is a notable achievement, and I greatly enjoy [...]

    11. Oh, I love this book. Really love it. I adore the artist and the author, both. The tag line is "the wonderful things about a house", and that's exactly what the book is about. I'm pretty excited because I just realized that I can use this in my classroom next year when we do our introductory unit on ourselves, our family, our homes. I'm pretty stoked about that.

    12. I loved the illustrations and story. Really, I love books like this that show quaint people, houses, family and places. The only thing I didn't like about it was the reference to coffee and tea, but that's only because we don't drink those so reading to my children I had to add parenthetically that we don't choose to drink things like that.

    13. Pairing Cynthia Rylant and Wendy Anderson Halperin is perfection. Rich, lush, gentle, and beautiful. Let's take a tour of one of the loveliest houses you've ever seen. It's a lot like yours, I'm sure, as it focuses on what makes it all so special, from smells, to tastes, to people, to pets. Bliss.

    14. This book is a great read on a cool fall day, snuggled under a blanket with your child. It's warming. The author has a great writing style and describes the comforts of home in each individual room. I want my children to love their home and the memories they will have inside of it and this book is a great help with that!

    15. Another perfect book to read to your little ones when they're snuggled into bed. The words are wonderful that way. The other half of the magic? The illustrations! Browsing them is the perfect way to pass a summer afternoon on the couch. I thought it was a gem.

    16. Cute story. I really liked going through all parts of house, and the author pointing out the momories that can be created in each room. Since, I might be moving from my own childhood home soon, the memories really struck a cord with me. Also the illustrations were fun and detailed.

    17. Evocative of a soft, well-worn quilt, this book shares all that is special about home. Going room by room, Rylant shares the simplest pleasures, from sitting quietly in front of the fireplace, to watching birds feed outside the window while standing at the kitchen sink. A lovely, sweet book.

    18. I like this book a lot, but it made me feel kind of weird because not all houses have the same things this house does.

    19. Such a warm, sweet book. We got it as a house-warming gift to send to friends who had moved out-of-town and liked it so much we got our own copy.

    20. K. loves this book--we may have to buy a copy of our own once the library stops letting us renew it. It's about being at home--not complicated, but sweet and comforting.
