Summary

Homes can be square or round or even stand on stilts. But no matter what a home looks like, home is where you are loved. The characters of Sesame Street take readers around the world to learn more about how kids live across the globe.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Centered on the cover, five familiar Muppet characters welcome Sesame Street fans to an introductory book on homes around the world. From apartment buildings in Spain and duplexes in South Africa to yurts in Mongolia, underground homes in Australia, and houses on stilts in Guyana, the book shows a variety of dwellings while returning to the message that "home is where you're loved." A typical double-page spread features one or two large photos illustrating a few simple sentences, with a character adding a comment or two. The main text offers information on a very basic level, while speech balloons sometimes play toward the Muppet-loving audience. For instance, Ernie stands beside a houseboat and remarks, "Rubber Duckie likes this home." Kids drawn to the book by familiar Muppet faces may leave with a somewhat larger view of how people's homes vary in different locales. An appended page introduces the topic of homelessness and refers to a Sesame Street Communities website offering relevant videos and activities for young children. A colorful, global introduction to homes."
