A mobile home is a home that can be moved from place to place. This fascinating new book looks at such unique homes as tents, igloos, and yurts, used by hunters and nomadic peoples, as well as trailers, houseboats, and recreational vehicles. Detailed photography shows what these kinds of homes are made from and what they look like inside. Other interesting topics include going to work and school when you are on the move and how people living in mobile homes are affected by extreme temperatures and natural phenomena such as hurricanes. A world map identifies the cities and countries featured in the book. Teacher’s guide available.

Homes on the Move

"While these books only contain basic information they will be useful to young readers who are learning about homes around the world which is quite often a topic in primary and early elementary and social studies programs. They can also serve as a jumping off point for further research through the books and websites which are listed for readers who want to do a little more in depth study of the topic." —Resource Links, 02/08
