    Richie’s Picks: A HOUSE THAT ONCE WAS by Julie Fogliano and Lane Smith, ill., Roaring Brook, May 2018, 48p., ISBN: 978-1-62672-314-6

    “Who was this someone

    who walked down this hallway

    who cooked in this kitchen

    who napped in this chair?

    Who was this someone

    who left without packing

    someone who’s gone

    but is still everywhere?”

    In the attic, inside a big plastic storage bin of old photos and memorabilia, there’s a black-and-white snapshot of me taken in 1966. I’m grinning and sweaty, a hammer in my hand, p

    Gorgeous. Just gorgeous. The language is beautiful.

    "Deep in the woods

    is a house

    just a house

    that once was

    but now isn't

    a home."

    The tone and mood is reflective and I love the illustrations. The story of an abandoned house in the woods in which two children explore it and wonder about its history and why it has been left just as it once was. Gorgeous.

    These illustrations are amazing! I love, love, love Lane Smith’s work in this book. Check out the little mouse peaking out of the photo on the wall! I truly enjoyed this story, told in rhyme, that made me wonder what has happened to the people who lived here and why did they leave their home behind? I could picture myself wandering through the halls of this house and imagining what might have been. I think this will be on my Mock Caldecott list!

    I wish I liked this better. The first stanza/spread is a home run. What I am starting to think after this book and her previous couple (When's My Birthday? and Old Dog Baby Baby) is that Fogliano is a real poet whose work may not be best served broken up across the pages of a standard picture book. I think the longer poems in When Green Becomes Tomatoes that could have gotten the picture book treatment were more effective the way they were, and I'd rather there were more such collections in her ...more

    When I was growing up there was an empty house across the street. A melancholy, haunted structure that seemed to wear its sadness like a badge. No one ever moved into it that I can recall, and the neighborhood kids would attempt to conjure up ghost stories to match its tired visage. I never went in it. Never even peeked in the window, though I longed to. To a kid, an abandoned house is better than a snow fort, a play structure, or a climbing tree combined. An empty house has history and mystery ...more

    What I especially liked about this book are the questions inside the house as to who lived here, what did they enjoy doing with their loved ones and friends, what inventive technologies did they use, and when did the somebodies live here. It is a puzzle that these histories fade away, unless documented in the history books of community and family.

    I truly loved this book as it stirred memories. As a pre-teen, I had this experience with a friend. It was like searching for buried treasure. In the '

    Rhythmical and enchanting, A House that Once Was is a picture book about imagining and connecting with how things might have been different in other times.

    Deep in the woods two children discover an old house; “a house that once was but now isn't a home”. The children enter the house through a broken window and it is immediately clear that the house used to be somebody’s home, as the pair discover faded pictures, empty food jars and abandoned music records. The children begin to imagine differen

    I love this book. This is exactly how I feel when I see abandoned buildings and houses-who was once here and what did they do?

    The author does a great job expressing the “wondering” part of this story. The thing I wonder about is the lack of an adult with these children as this could be a dangerous adventure. I would hate to have children encouraged by this book to explore like this on their own.

    The illustrations are well done, just not my personal style.
