Building Our House
Product Description
A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice! In this unique construction book for kids who love tools and trucks, readers join a girl and her family as they pack up their old house in town and set out to build a new one in the country. Mom and Dad are going to make the new house themselves, from the ground up. From empty lot to finished home, every stage of their year-and-a-half-long building project is here. And at every step their lucky kids are watching and getting their hands dirty, in page after page brimming with machines, vehicles, and all kinds of house-making activities! As he imagines it through the eyes of his older sister, this is Jonathan Bean’s retelling of his own family’s true experience, and includes an afterword with photographs from the author’s collection. Ages 3 - 6.

I’m Excited!

  • I'm excited about TowardtheStars! I even looked to volunteer. I grew up in the 70s, when the closest thing we had to a "princess" was Wonder Woman. I wore jeans, climbed trees, played ball, rode bikes.
  • I'm appalled at the choices offered today to my 6 year old daughter and want to be part of the movement to change the status quo.

Choices For My Daughter!

  • When I was 6 my favourite present was a garage. I had dolls but I also had a skateboard. I had options. When my daughter was born I was shocked that everything was pink fluffy and princessy, actually disappointed.
  • I'm making a determined effort to give my daughter choices. Having TowardTheStars as a resource means that I have support in raising a strong, confident, well adjusted and intelligent daughter.

About Us

We believe every child is placed on this earth to accomplish something remarkable, something that only he or she can do. Our tribe was created with one single purpose, to help reduce all threats to girlhood that crush our girls ' true nature and potential. We focus on overturning the gender stereotypes that make girls obsess with body image, keep girls from taking leadership roles, that limit girls' interests in sciences and math and cause them to feel self-aware when playing sports.
