Standing as long as House has, it's seen a lot of people come and go. Families move in and then they move out to other things. House has seen many different families and watches them make memory after memory. When the halls are empty, House is sad and dark. With each new person, House is given a new life. Both the inside and outside will change, but House will still stand strong and hold on to each memory families have left behind within its walls.

HOUSE FINDS A HOME is an endearing story that makes you look differently at the houses you live in because it is told from a house's point of view. No matter how many people come and go, the house still stands and finds purpose with each new owner. The illustrations are more on a dark yet soft color scheme and a tad on the boxy side. The meaning behind the story is powerful and teaches children to not take things for granted.

Final Verdict: HOUSE FINDS A HOME would be a cute story for children who move around a lot or for those who are interested in emotional stories. It helps expand their way of thinking and look at aspects of life in a completely different way while encouraging them to question things.
