A House That Once Was Reviews

  • Michelle

    There's something so appealing about Julie Fogliano's writing. Lyrical, yet conversational, it evokes a dreamlike mindfulness that is both here-and-now and on the edge of something that's not quite, but very nearly in reach. It transports you, puts you at ease, and fills you with hope—a tall order by anyone's standards.

    A house that once was pairs Fogliano with Caldecott Award–winning illustrator Lane Smith to create an enchanting and unforgettable story about a boy and a girl who discover an aba

    I do love the sad mysterious ones. Although I’m not sure I would have thought it was sad when I was a kid.

    This makes me think of my favorite Margaret Wise Brown books. I love the way Julie Fogliano plays with the poetic line, and how she dives right into the weird and unexpected stuff. And the illustrations are perfect. Just the right balance of beautiful and strange—and the imagined scenes being clearer and bolder than the images of the boy and girl exploring the house speaks more profoundly a

    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

    Two children find an old, abandoned house and begin walking through it, attempting to figure out who used to live there and why they left. They find old toys, discarded books, and pictures of who may have been the inhabitants. It’s both a sweet and somber picture book that includes a great deal of imagination. My daughter picked this one up for me from our local public library. She and I opened it and began pouring over the beautiful illustrations. There’s such variation in the artwork and we im ...more

    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

    Finding an old house and its physical artifacts leads a brother and sister to wonder about its previous occupants in imaginative ways.

    Could be an intro to examining old photos or original documents/diaries.

    Meter is a little tricky, but that makes you consider the words more carefully. Gorgeous illustrations by Lane Smith.

  • Vicki

    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.

    If you drive the country roads, especially those less traveled and paved with dirt and gravel, you will see remnants of previous buildings. There are large square or rectangular areas with broken stone foundations. Some portions are entirely missing. Other rocks are cemented in place and a foot high. Standing fence posts designate the existence of former barnyards. Nearby there are similar but smaller foundations for the houses.

    A clearer sign of human occupation are the carefully placed lilac bu
