Did you ever wonder how a home is built? Who thinks of the house first? Who can use the big cement mixers in their job? Follow a house — a special house, built by women from the ground up — as it goes from idea to becoming someone's very own home! The House that She Built educates young readers about all the people and skills that go into building a home. One by one, we learn about the architect, the framer, the roofer, the plumber, the interior designer, the electrician, and many more workers at a construction site. As they contribute their individual skills, each one is needed to complete the collective project — a new home.
Inspired by the true story of a team of real women who came together from around the country to build a one-of-a-kind home, and supported by industry leaders 84 Lumber and Andersen Windows & Doors, this book will leave all kids (she, he, and they) excited about their own skills and interested in learning new ones. Plus, parents and educators will love that proceeds from the book will support workforce development initiatives.
