School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-With the exception of Pyramid, the spare texts in these books focus on homes of families from different cultures: pioneers in Log Cabin, Plains Indians in Tepee, and Inuit in Igloo. The photographs in Igloo feature people of all ages wearing both traditional and modern clothing and using modern tools. Tepee is less successful in this regard; despite the structure on the cover, which has a plastic bucket and a broom lying against it, all of the interior art features Plains Indians wearing historical garb, which may reinforce stereotypes about them. The full-page images (several labeled) are mainly color photographs, but also include a reproduction in Log Cabin. Pyramid employs a less-successful hybrid of drawings and computer-generated imagery. Of the four, Log Cabin and Igloo are the best.-Alana Abbott, James Blackstone Memorial Library, Branford, CT (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
