Building a Home

author: Polly Faber
illustrator: Klas Fahlén

This beautifully illustrated picture book shows how an old factory can become a brand-new apartment, step-by-step. Find out all about the people, machines, processes, and tools involved in breathing new life into an old building. With builders, cranes, diggers, cement mixers, and a host of other machinery detailed in bright and contemporary artwork, readers can watch a crumbling old factory on the edge of town as it goes from being an empty shell to something entirely new . . . a home!
