Little Houses is a magnificent book, the artist Helen Musselwhite has illustrated the book with paper to create model houses in a variety of settings. Everything is handmade, by cutting individual pieces of coloured and painted paper.
Apart from being a slap-up meal for your eyeballs, the book has another purpose, it is a counting book, (that’s right mums and dads, it’s not for you – hands off).
Children can use this charming book to help them to learn to count from 1 – 10, in addition to this they will learn about different types of houses from different parts of the world – from a Scottish crofter’s cottage to ten town houses beside a canal in Amsterdam.
