A small boy lived in a small apartment in a big city with his family. The city was filled with people and cars, buildings, and parks. The small boy wanted to see if there was a better place to live and he went to a faraway place. He visited an igloo and the family that lived there had made it out of blocks of snow. From there the small boy visited a big farm with many animals. On the other side of the farm, the boy met a farmer who showed him where all plants and vegetables grew. He visited different places and realized that it was his family that made his apartment home and a wonderful place to live.
Home by Adam Leitman Bailey highlights the importance of love and family that makes a home a special place over everything else. The boy's realization after visiting many places helps young readers understand how love, family, and home are all interconnected with each other. The illustrations are charming and they give clarity to the concept. It is a beautiful book to use for storytelling at home and in school to make children realize that family and love make a home, regardless of its size and structure. The message is good and tutors and parents can discuss a lot with their students and children when it comes to the topic of home, love, and family, which makes this book perfect to read out loud with children.
