What Wee Read
Home by Carson Ellis
We’re fans of Carson Ellis from her work as the artist for the band the Decemberists, so we were thrilled to find this picture book. Not surprisingly, it’s beautifully illustrated and hand-lettered. It takes readers through many different types of places that people call home — whether a house in the country, an apartment, a wigwam or a shoe. Ellis illustrates the home of a Slovakian duchess, a Kenyan blacksmith, a Japanese businessman, a Norse god, a raccoon, and more. It’s a coffee table display book that our kids love to explore.
