This House, Once

This House, Once

by Deborah Freedman

Deborah Freedman’s masterful new picture book is at once an introduction to the pieces of a house, a cozy story to share and explore, and a dreamy meditation on the magic of our homes and our world.

Before there was this house,

there were stones,

and mud,

and a colossal oak tree—

three hugs around

and as high as the blue.

 

What was your home, once?

This poetically simple, thought-provoking, and gorgeously illustrated book invites readers to think about where things come from and what nature provides.
