How Does My Home Work?

How Does My Home Work? by Chris Butterworth; illustrated by Lucia Gaggiotti. 2017. Mixed media. Published by Candlewick Press.

Brief summary: The book shows an average house in an opened dollhouse sort of view so young readers can see all the rooms of the house. It explains where the different energies come from and what happens when they go in and out of the house.

Comments: Love this book!  I wish I had this book with all of its diagrams, labels, and captions when I was growing up to understand how everything works in the house. A definite must for any library.

I plan to share this with my teachers and students when they are doing energy units.

The endpapers are full of household gadgets. There are suggested ideas of how to save energy in the back of the book along with an index.
