Every week I write about the books that we read for my son. He is currently 4 years old and loves a good book! I am not a professional book and illustration reviewer or critic, but I can write about the book, what I think about it, and how our son reacted to it.
What the Book is About
The One Day House tells the story of Wilson, a young boy, and Gigi, his older friend (or maybe a grandma) in the neighborhood. Gigi’s house is old, dilapidated, and needed lots of repairs. Wilson says that one day, he will paint Gigi’s house, fix her window, build a fence, fix the stairs, and plant a garden so Gigi’s house will be better.
He started telling people about his plans “one day.” He told people at the library. He told his teacher and his classmates. Until one day, the whole community came together to Gigi’s house and worked together in fixing Gigi’s house.
This book was inspired by the author’s writing partner and friend who is a carpenter and volunteers his time to build and fix houses for people who cannot afford to do so.
