We’re thrilled that Building a Home, written by Polly Faber and illustrated by Klas Fahlén, has been named Scottish Book Trust’s Bookbug Book of the Month! Beautifully illustrated throughout and with inclusive characters, Building a Home is a wonderful guide to exactly how an old building can become a brand-new home.
Find out all about the people, machines, processes and tools involved in breathing new life into an old building. Packed with builders, cranes, diggers, cement mixers and a host of other exciting tools and machinery, follow a crumbling old factory on the edge of town as it goes from being an empty shell to something entirely new… a home.
The Scottish Book Trust said: “Ever wondered how you build a home? Building a Home guides you through this fascinating process with beautifully detailed illustrations and a step by step narrative. Full of different characters – architects; a foreman; bricklayers; plumbers; electricians – and powerful machinery including diggers, bulldozers and one enormous crane, Building a Home shows us how we make a house, a home.”
