Homes Around the World Summary

Homes Around the World by Moira Butterfield

Take a journey around the world to discover the homes of children just like you!

Where in the world do children live in reed houses on floating islands?
Where are the highest homes: in the city skyscrapers, or in the snowy mountains?
Why are some houses in India painted blue, and why do some people in South Africa paint patterns on their homes?
Find out in Homes Around the World!

Children will love reading about the homes of their contemporaries in other countries; from underground homes and floating homes, to eco-homes, and the most unusual homes.

Includes Art Station activities where readers are encouraged to use their new knowledge creatively!

About Moira Butterfield

I have been writing for many years in a number of different genres, from books for babies up to books for 11 year-olds plus. I like to try new things and tackle new subjects, so I don't limit myself to one type of book. One month I might be writing about history, and the next month I might be creating an imaginary story. Examples of my work have been selected for national Key Stage study in the UK, and in the USA I was commended by the Library of Congress for my work in non-fiction, which they felt encouraged reluctant readers. I work with visuals always in mind, and love the challenge of getting across information or an exciting story with good graphics to back it up. Lately I have been blogging about the craft of writing, and I've also appeared at National Book Festivals, which I think of as the most challenging thing of all to do! I get a lot of emails from children around the world, inspired by one of my books they have read, and that gives me great pleasure.
