This book is an introduction to how, what, who is involved when it comes to building houses. This book introduces students to the different professions that are involved with building a house. The book shows the variety of materials that are needed to build a house. I would only use this book with very young students. This book could potentially be a way that you could help students connect the engineering design process in class to the real world. Ultimately, I do not think I would use this book in my classroom, due to the disengaging material. ( )
