See your home with new eyes in this fun, interactive activity book

How many adventures will be started by this quirky activity book? With all of us currently spending more time in our homes than we ever expected, it’s perfect for now, full not only of interesting facts about our houses and furniture (from information on the first bed to Le Corbusier’s ideas), but also with activity ideas inspired by the place where we live. These range from making architectural plans to designing a chair (with a nod to Bauhaus), to creating a board game à la Cluedo. Attractively designed, fun and fact-filled, this will expand the walls of your home and make it a place of quiet adventure for children – perfect.

Take Me Home Synopsis

Take Me Home is the latest book in this exciting series for young explorers. Crammed with facts, lively illustrations and inspiring activities, it's perfect for spending creative time at home – just the thing for completing after school or on a rainy day.  

With this book as your guide, you don't even need to go out of your own front door to discover new things! Each chapter of Take Me Home is filled with activities that encourage children to explore the place where they live, jot down their ideas and draw what they see. As they complete lists, create pictures and answer questions they are prompted to look at their own home in new ways – observing its different spaces and the objects that fill it. 

Fun, quirky and bursting with information about homes throughout history; architecture and design; the way things work; and the artists and writers who have been inspired by the idea of home, this book is a perfect gift for curious and creative children. 

Take Me Home follows the popular format of Take Me To Museums, Take Me On Holiday, Take Me To School and Take Me Outdoors. 

Take Me Home Press Reviews

Praise for the "Take Me" series:

"This gorgeous series makes the perfect gift for creative children."  - Frances Morris, Director of Tate Modern

"Occasionally a product comes along that you LOVE and it's made all the more impressive because it's produced by a teeny tiny indie publisher who have knocked it out of the park with concept, design and production."  - Smallprint Books, SE23

"Journals, scrapbooks and activity books rolled into one, and so beautifully designed." - The Little Literary Society
