The book is supported by industry leaders, 84 Lumber and Andersen Windows & Doors.Proceeds from the book will support workforce development initiatives.
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 – 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
- interior designer
- 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.
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. In addition to showing kids careers they can dream about and explore, this story bridges the gap between the classic books Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel and Bob the Builder and an inclusive world where everyone can follow their dreams and use their skills. The House That She Builtshows how STEM and STEAM jobs that use science, technology, math, and the arts all work together for a common goal.
