An engaging introduction to buildings, with a deft mix of nonfiction and fiction elements.

Learning about buildings and how they are constructed has never been so much fun. This gem of a book introduces young readers to basic construction concepts through the eyes of five friends keen on building a doghouse for their pet pooch, Max. To find out more about the task, Yulee, Martin, Nick, Sally and Pedro head to the library, where they learn about foundations, beams, frames and other building fundamentals. Fun facts, bright illustrations and comic-book-style discussions among the characters add to the mix. An activity at the end of the book invites readers to make their own mini doghouse out of marshmallows, paper, glue and craft sticks.

Scot Ritchie is an award-winning author-illustrator of over 50 books including Follow That Map!, Look Where We Live! and My House Is Alive!: The Weird and Wonderful Sounds Your House Makes. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.
