This Is Our House

By Michael Rosen
Illustrated by Bob Graham

A gentle tale for pre-schoolers, introducing the concept of sharing in the playground from multi award winning author and poet Michael Rosen.

From former Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen comes a simple and poignant tale of the power of sharing, with superb artwork by award winning illustrator Bob Graham. George says the cardboard house is his and no one else can play in it. It isn't for girls, small people, twins, people with glasses, or people who like tunnels. But Lindy, Marly, Freddie, Charlene, Marlene, Luther, Sophie and Rasheda have other ideas! One by one each child is refused access until tables are turned and George finds how it feels to be on the receiving end. A topical and perceptive book that shows that it is much more fun to share.

  • Award-winning author/illustrator team.
  • A story that will delight young and old.
  • Will encourage discussion on the topic of diversity.
