Description: The village of Tos is like no other village in the world, for in this village the women live in round houses and the men live in square ones. The story of how this came to be is told from the point of view of a young girl who grew up there.

Ann Grifalconi's bold, dynamic art and rhythmic storytelling recreate this world and make The Village of Round and Square Houses a perfect book for reading aloud. (32 pigs) Ages 3-6

Ashay says, "Always a great story and an award winning book. It teaches children the importance for men and women to be together and sometimes apart because in the village they had different roles. Nice portrayal of village life. Must have for the library and classroom. Teach!"
