A picture is worth a thousand words; the 10 photos in this book, along with the accompanying descriptive detailed drawings, make this a very informative book for children. There has never been a photographer of buildings like Yoshio Komatsu. He has travelled extensively around the world for 25 years, photographing hand-built homes. Photos from Mongolia, China, Indonesia, India, Romania, Tunisia, Spain, Togo, Senegal, and Bolivia. Each structure is beautifully photographed, and then colorfully rendered in pen and wash, with many descriptive captions explaining the everyday life of children and families in these homes.
