Little Houses

When a young girl visits her grandparents at the beach, she stays in a little house and walks along the shore gathering seashells — which were once little houses of their own. As she wanders the beach, she wonders about the creatures who used to live in each shell, about the hidden treasures of the sea, and about the mysteries of the world. With striking imagery, depth of emotion, and a lovely multigenerational relationship, this book deftly captures the feeling of wonder and imagination that is fostered by a trip to the shore.

From award-winning and bestselling author Kevin Henkes and the acclaimed painter Laura Dronzek, Little Houses is an unforgettable masterpiece about nature, family, wonder, and the ocean. The lyrical writing and stunning paintings make this a great choice for family sharing and for story times all year round.

Description

"'But who lived here? Where is it now? Is its ghost still inside the curved walls?' This thread of inquiry turns from small environments to a large one — what’s inside the depths of the ocean. 'Fish as big as cars, creatures whose names I don’t know, lost toys, lost coins.' The grandparents’ quiet, affirming presences allow their grandchild space to contemplate. 'The world is so big,' says Grandpa, smiling, 'and there is so much to know. And someday you’ll know it all.'" — Publishers Weekly
