Creaky Old House , a children’s book by Linda Ashman, arrived in Simon’s Easter basket and we are loving it!

The whole story about how to fix a very loved old house when a doorknob breaks is told in bouncy rhyming verse.

Michael Chesworth’s illustrations are gorgeous!  I love this one at a local hardware store!

The end result is that the family decides they love their old house just the way it is, which makes me happy.  We have lots of things around our house that need fixing, but this sweet book is a reminder of what truly makes a house a home.
