A waterside home is a home that lies next to, or floats on, a sea, a river, a lake, or a canal. This exciting new book looks at homes built beside, over, or on top of water in cities such as Venice and Hong Kong, and high in the Andes Mountains on Lake Titicaca. Detailed photography shows what these kinds of homes are made from and what they look like inside. Other interesting topics include working, going to school, and getting around on water, and how people living near water are affected by flooding, soil erosion, hurricanes, and water pollution. A world map identifies the cities and countries featured in the book. Teacher’s guide available.

Homes on the Water

"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
