520    Fascinating and unique, Wonderful Houses Around the World 
       gives children a welcome entree into other places and 
       other lives throughout the world. Glorious two-page 
       photographic spreads capture families outside their homes,
       be they simple or imposing. Detailed cutaway illustrations
       reveal the inside of each house, showing the various 
       family members engaged in typical daily activities. 
       Captions explain where each house is located, the 
       environmental conditions that affect the house design, how
       the family lives in the home, and their possessions - all 
       providing interesting glimpses of life in other cultures. 
       The ten houses profiled include a red mud dwelling with 
       thatched towers in Togo, a yurt in Mongolia, a steep-
       roofed, shake-covered house in Transylvania, and a large 
       donut-shaped communal building for 300 in China. This book
       increases children's wonder about and cultural awareness 
       of the many different people and ways of life around the 
       world.
