Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Ages 5^-8. Chesanow begins in a child's room, places it in a home, on a street, in a town, and then in a city and state, country, continent, the world. And that world is called Earth, which is a planet in the solar system. Then the child is drawn back to a page of questions about the reader's own street, town, state, and so on. The author's chatty approach may lose some readers along the way: "Your home is the place where your room is. It's the place where you live. Of course, you don't live at home all by yourself. Other people live there with you. They are your family." The ink drawings with bright watercolor washes will appeal to many children, though, and so will the book's central idea. Primary-grade teachers doing units on "Who Am I?" may appreciate the long-range perspective this book offers. Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book is wonderful. I teach 1st grade and this book was able to give my students a perspective about where they live starting with their room and expanding to the U.S. We were able to make a flow map out of the information which gave my visual learners and ELL's another way of remembering this information. We tied it all in to learning our address and family history. A great book totally for classroom use.

My big guy is in Kindergarten and is learning about the continents, so I wanted to go a step further and show him why we have maps. We camp often and he sees me pouring over maps to decide our next days activities, but my maps are extensive and confusing for most people.

Enter "Where Do I Live?" where the first two pages are about a girl that draws a map of her bedroom. I see in his face HE GETS IT! Being very inquisitive he asked question after question about the books contents and maps in general. You could read the book in 10 minutes, but it took well over an hour to go through it the first time. A very simple yet perfect book!

During our study of the Solar System, this book really held my students attention. It made them view where we 'live' in a different way.

I bought this book for my 3 year old son before our move from NC to WA. I wanted him to be able to understand where we live, and how we would be living in a new place. Some of the material is a bit over his head, (I think when started talking about outer space he didn't fully grasp it, but enjoyed in nonetheless,) but we both loved the book! Great illustrations. I think it would be perfect for a kindergartner to 2nd grader!!

It is clear, concise and fun for my students. They got the idea quickly and helped them to learn the concept of where they live.

I bought two copies of this book to use with my students. I love how it starts out talking about a bedroom in a house, goes step-by-step from a bedroom to the universe and back again. Almost each page starts with the same type of wording, the repetition of which is useful in helping my students with their comprehension. The illustrations are great, too.

This was the perfect book to go along with the two that follow. It was Lance's birthday. He had requested a compass as a gift. These three books helped him understand how to find out where he lives and the difference between living on an island, Vashon, or living on the main land in Seattle.
