My House by Byron Barton

With bright, clear illustrations and clean prose, award-winning and bestselling picture book creator Byron Barton deftly familiarizes young children with the various rooms and important parts of a house in this companion to his critically acclaimed My Car, My Bike, and My Bus. Jim the cat leads a tour through the bedroom, the kitchen, and even onto the roof before his owner Jane comes home and makes his dinner. The rhythmic text and bright illustrations make this the perfect book for repeated readings and the perfect introduction to the concept of home.

Reviews

Full-color art...suits each cheerful scene with concise and simple text displayed in bright yellow font. ...Jim adds practicality along with feline flair as he complete his rounds with a final statement. 'I like my home. Meow.

's abode is a welcome place for all who enter. -- School Library Journal (starred review) Short and accessible. ...The eye-catching digital artwork uses vibrant colors, simple shapes, and bold patterns to create pictures with a childlike look. Another ideal read-aloud choice from Byron Barton. -- Booklist Barton crafts his story with preschoolers firmly in mind, providing just enough tension ( I hear a noise downstairs ) and plot twists to keep things interesting; his signature shapes and bold colors are a perfect match for the clean, brief, straightforward text. -- The Horn Book The very short sentences and simple vocabulary make this perfect for a toddler or preschool audience but also accessible to beginning readers. The bold, blocky illustrations...are childlike in their rendering...cat-loving kiddos will find this installment in Barton's oeuvre especially attractive. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books'
