    1. I'm sorry so many reviewers did not enjoy this book, because it's one I love to give to families with new babies, and in more than one of those families, it has become a favorite. We all love its charm and fancy and pure joy. “I’ll make a house the kind I dream about not the kind I see…”

    2. it seems like the type of book i'd like, but it's just too cracked out for a kid's book. the ending? seriously.

    3. Although this book is kind of weird (a random pink doorknob, a horse upstairs - all in an imaginary house), it appeals to something deep within that wants to make And also takes you away, to what "could be," instead of real life. Creating a house of our own imagining, a world the way we think would be wonderful, and have special touches that we like in it are cool things to imagine. So it was rather transporting.

    4. This book centers around the imagination of a child, so it seems like it might be fun to use to inspire creative writing. However, you could relate it to a math activity if you read the book and then have students make their "dream house" with shapes and then tell about it using directional words like next to or above. It would be a really fun activity for kindergarten students to work with that standard.

    5. 2.0 This strikes me as a handy early reader book more than a good storybook for reading to younger kids. There's no narrative or rhythm to the prose, which feels like a litany of vocabulary words - not very fun for the adult reader. It ends quite abruptly.

    6. Great surrealism from a personal favorite of mine, Ruth Krauss. Illustrated by Maurice Sendak before he developed his instantly recognizable art style.
