Home and a Give-Away



Home, by Adam Leitman Bailey, is the story of a young boy who lives in a very small apartment in a very large city. Looking out his window causes him to wonder if there were better places to live.  This starts his adventure of homes.  From a mansion to an igloo to a farm to a mobile home and even a bird’s nest containing two eggs, the boy looks at what it was like to live there.  His journey leads him to the conclusion his own home with him with his own family is the best place to live.




Lovely pastel-toned drawings support this sweet story well.  Sentence length may be a little daunting for beginning readers, so they may need a little support to read it alone.  Home makes a nice read-aloud. 

Bailey’s inspiration for this story was his young sons.  Proceeds from Home go to Building Foundations andDreams, the author’s non-profit with the mission of assisting students of all ages in pursuing their professional and personal dreams. The illustrator generously donated the drawings and chose to remain anonymous.
