How Does My Home Work?

By Chris Butterworth

Illustrated by Lucia Gaggiotti

The third title in a series of process books, this stylishly illustrated book explains how our homes are supplied with electricity, water and gas.

A sequel to Lunchbox: The Story of Your Food and Where Do Clothes Come From? by Chris Butterworth and Lucia Gaggiotti, this stylishly illustrated book explains the mechanical processes required to produce the things our homes needs to keep us happy and comfortable – electricity, water and gas. Chris Butterworth traces the journey of water, describing how it falls from the sky as rain then gets collected up in reservoirs and sent to factories to be treated and tested, before it can finally be piped to our homes. She also simply and clearly explains how electricity is made and where the gas we use in our boilers comes from. This fascinating process book succeeds in being young, child-centred and friendly, but also packs in an enormous amount of technical information.
