Home is Where the Heart Is, January 26, 2000 By K. Stinchfield "stinchy(USA)

The Hidden House is my favorite picture book because it is such a wonderful, magical tale. If you have ever craved a home of your own, filled with history and character, this is a story for you! The illustrations by Angela Barrett are so evocative. When I read it to my students, they always collectively sigh, once they realize the house is being loved. Read it! You'll love it!
