LIBRARY MOUSE: HOME SWEET HOME by Daniel Kirk. New York: Abrams Books for Young Readers, 2013. 40p. ISBN: 978-1-4197-0544-1 hb. $16.95.   Gr. K-4   E PIC

When authors like Daniel Kirk teach you something while enjoying a good story, life is good.  There are all kinds of houses all over the world.   How and why houses are built depend on many different factors.  The weather can be one of those factors, as well as a show of wealth and power by the owner.  Not only are there several different houses mentioned, but pictures of them as well.  If that isn't enough to satisfy you, then you could read about a range of different houses in the back of the book.  There is even a glossary! This is a wonderful book that will entertain a wide variety of ages.
