Homegrown House

illustrated by E.B. Lewis

Bank Street Best Books of the Year

CBC/NCSS Notable Social Studies Trade Book

“A young girl frets about moving to a new house while yearning for a “homegrown” house like her grandmother’s. . . . As she narrates, the girl transitions from resentment and frustration to acceptance and optimism, gradually coming to terms with the latest move. Kids anticipating or recovering from moving should feel right at home.”

Helpful for kids who move a lot, this is a solid example of descriptive writing.”
School Library Journal

“This is a wonderful book for kids, especially when they are visiting those fabulous grandparents who emulate the wise woman found in this book.”
