This softly illustrated story reads and feels like a lullabye but it's packed with a fascinating exploration of what came together to create this house.
Before the house was a house, what is now the front door was a colossal oak tree, "three hugs around."The bricks that form the walls were oozy mud. The windows were simple sand.
This is a beautiful, poetic story that connects our manmade world to the deep, natural resources that cradle us.
