You and Me and Home Sweet Home

You and Me and Home Sweet Home by George Ella Lyon and Stephanie Anderson, a Richard Jackson Book/Atheneum Books for Young Readers, an imprint of Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing. Sharonda and her Mother are homeless, sleeping nights on a fold out cot at her auntie's house. But one day, a community of people come together to build a house for the two of them. We watch the house go up, the multi-racial, multi-age group of people working. Even Sharonda gets to help. And finally - the house is done. The key is theirs. The book hums with the prayer spoken by one of the builders "God our Maker, bless this food and work. Use our hands to build a better world." Honor book for young children, 2010.
