My Little Round House

(3) K-3 Adapted by Helen Mixter. In simple prose, a Mongolian child describes the first year of his life, beginning with the moment of his birth. At the center of his family's traditional nomadic experience stands the "little round house"--the ger--which is taken apart and rebuilt with each seasonal move to a new location. Rich-hued gouache paintings display the text's details about Mongolian culture.
