Harry Builds a House

Derek Radford, Author Aladdin Paperbacks $10.95 (28p) ISBN 978-0-689-71439-9
Step by step, Harry the hippo and his crew build a house. They lay the foundation, build the walls, put on a roof, and install wiring and plumbing. Equipment is shown in detail, as are safety precautions such as wearing hard hats. It's not all work for Harry and his cheerful gang: they drink coffee and eat lunch on the job, too. (And sometimes they get rained out.) This colorful book demystifies the process of house construction in a clear, straightforward way. Radford packs a wealth of information into a most digestible format. The cross-sectional illustrations of plumbing pipes are especially effective. Ages 4-8. (Sept.)
