The House That She Built Book

Independent Book Publishers Association Benjamin Franklin Award

The perfect tool to inspire growing minds.

The House That She Built is a best selling children’s book that educates young readers about the people and skills that go into building a home. One by one, we learn about the architect, framer, roofer and many more as they contribute their individual skills needed to complete the collective project — a new home.

With illustrations that connect and empower and words that build upon each other with each page, this book will leave all kids (she, he, and they) excited about their own skills and interested in learning new ones.

 * Gifting and donating the book within your community is a great way to participate in The House That She Built movement!
