The opening title pages feature two children and their dog. They busy themselves on a nature walk, reading comics in a "house" made of a cardboard box, playing at an anthill, pointing to a bird's nest. Most of the scenes are in and around the children's house. Pine trees are heavily featured in the background of many of the illustrations, and a tree which squirrels scamper upon is clearly the same tree in the children's yard (complete with idyllic swing hanging from its branches.) The "castle" of the story's title is a charming little playhouse for the children. The easy rhymes lend a feel of the bedtime story to this book (the same brother and sister featured earlier are cozily tucked into bed by the end of the story.) This book could also find itself well suited as a discussion opener for any pre-school or kindergarten class discussing concepts of nature and homes.
I read these book recently as part of a "Houses and Homes" themed storytime, where it was a big hit.
