This book is a story about a single mother and her eight children during the Great Depression. The family, recently widowed, is evicted from their house and find a small shed in the woods they convert into a home. As each season passes, the narrator, a six-year-old named Marvel, finds things about her new home that warm her heart. It's truly a perfect story, and the illustrations are unmatched. ( )

Home in the Woods is based off of the author's grandmother's life during the Great Depression. They lost their house, their father died to cancer, and all they had was the clothes on their back. they fine a shack in the woods, and with effort and care they build it up and survive. The moral in the story is best described as be thankful for what you have. the family lost everything, but manage to make a life out of one tiny shack. The artwork compounds this idea that they are poor, by showing rather than telling. the reader can see that many of the characters don't have shoes, or play with mud and leaves instead of toys. Overall Home in the Woods is a good story with beautiful illustrations, one worth reading. ( )

This story of life during the Great Depression in the early 1930s was inspired by the author/illustrator’s grandmother Marvel, who in this book is a six-year-old girl, one of eight children. The book, which is narrated by Marvel and which revolves around the seasons, begins in summer. Their father recently died (“Dad lives with the angels now”) and they must find a new home and a way to feed themselves. The author writes:

“Deep in these woods, we find a shack
all wrapped in tar paper.
It’s hot outside, but the shack
Looks cold
And empty.
Like I feel inside.

‘You never know what treasures
We’ll find,’ says Mum.”

Indeed, they discover a root cellar with fresh water from a pump and storage space for canning. They plant a garden in the rich, dark soil and find berry patches in the woods. Mum goes to town to do odd jobs for money, and the kids take turns doing chores. They invent games, learn to quilt, and learn to read:

“Rich teaches me that letters, put together, make words . . . and words, put together, make stories.”

After a year, they have mastered the art of survival, and find a measure of happiness:

“Here in these woods,
I find my brothers, my sisters,
Our mum, and me (Marvel).
The shack all wrapped in tar paper
Looks different now -
Warm
And bright
And filled up with love . . .
. . . like I feel inside.”

An Author’s Note explains how the author, Eliza, when growing up, heard many stories from her grandma Marvel and her great uncles about how they survived. She writes:

“What an incredibly hard time it must have been, and yet they recall the memories from those years as some of their best. They all had purpose and found inventive ways to work together and make it fun.”

The ink and watercolor illustrations by the author are lovely. She varies the palette to match the seasons. While spring, with its flowers, has beautiful scenes, my favorite is a double-page spread showing a winter night, in which the world is covered with snow that sparkles like the stars above.

Evaluation: This is one amazing family. I can’t imagine being a young mother, newly widowed at age 34 with eight children, including a baby of three months, and having the will not only to carry on, but to make it a fun and rewarding time for the whole family. Children who don’t know much about the Great Depression, or who are not aware of what the hardships of deep poverty must be like, will benefit from reading this story, and be inspired, as I was, by how this family coped.

Marvel is one of 8 kids whose father has just passed away. They're looking for a new home and find one in the woods. The home is a shack wrapped in tar paper with not much to offer. With hard work, patience, and dedication, the family turns the shack into a loving, warm home they can call their own.

I admired the tenacity of this family. It is difficult to lose a parent and for a woman to raise eight children all by herself. They take refuge in a place that is cold and uninviting and make something great out of it. This story proves that hard work pays off and that it is all about perspective. They never expect their situation to improve overnight. Instead, they keep going and do not give up and have the best attitude. ( )

After their father’s death, Marvel’s family moves into a tarpaper shack. Over the course of four seasons, they fix up the shack, plant a garden, explore the surrounding woods, preserve the harvest, and enjoy a successful hunt. When spring comes around, the shack has become a home of warmth and love.Simple prose, practical, just like how they had to live, off the land, on few earnings. Making the best of what they have. No rush, just one day and season at a time. ( )
