This highly attractive introduction to a subject that is of real fascination to young children looks at the variety of homes and their relationship to the environment people inhabit in different parts of the world. In a nearly square format, the book is easily handled by children and is clearly and stunningly illustrated with bright colour photographs. It contains contents, a combined index and glossary, and captions to provide experience of the organisational features of non-fiction. It has also been checked by literacy and geography consultants.
