Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How Things Work Around the House is a fun introduction to non-fiction that celebrates young children's inquisitiveness about the world around them. How does a spoon work? Or a bathtub? Or a toilet? Award-winning author and illustrator Lisa Campbell Ernst takes a close look and quirky look at household objects and shows how "amazingness is going on around us every nanosecond of the day" by inviting kids to marvel at things as close to home as--their own house! Learn about thermal heat, how there once was a Bureau of Missing Socks, the non-pig origins of piggy banks, and why dirt and oil are no match for soap. Discover the nifty amazingness all around us, and especially right where we live.

Synopsis:

In How Things Work in the House, Lisa Campbell Ernst delves into how common household objects--such as soap, scissors and house keys--work. The detailed, but easy-to-understand, language describes the functioning of everyday items, and Ernst's meticulous and cleverly labeled pictures are fascinating. How Things Work in the House is a marvelous companion to the much-praised How Things Work Around the Yard. It also stands on its own as kid-compelling non-fiction.
