The House... The Book... The Movement!
Let's empower girls by cultivating conversations and curiosity around careers in *STEAM & construction.
*Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math
The House That She Built educates young readers about the people and skills that go into building a home. One by one, we learn about the architect, framer, roofer and many more as they contribute their individual skills needed to complete the collective project — a new home.
With illustrations that connect and empower and words that build upon each other with each page, this movement will leave all kids (she, he, and they) excited about their own skills and interested in learning new ones.
Free Construction Activities
Perfect for company team building, kids clubs, or an activity at home. The House That She Built is for everyone.
The NEW and improved Girl Scouts Patch Program will launch in early 2023.
“It’s so great to see a book that highlights the building trades and inspired by REAL WOMEN. We must showcase gender equity at a young age. This is a story to cherish and share.”
“We are delighted to share this story of women in construction to inspire the next generation of young women to pursue rewarding careers in the trades. Throughout Andersen Windows & Doors company history, women have played a pivotal role in shaping our company and the building industry.”
“I love that there is a book I can read to my daughter that describes what I do! This book teaches children about the various phases of home construction and inspires them to imagine the different ways they can be builders.”
“The books we read as children can shape the people we grow up to be. The House That She Built is empowering, encouraging, informative, and inspiring. Every child needs a book like this on their shelf that says “You can do anything you set your mind to.”
“While my daughters loved to hear about The House That Jack Built, I wish we could also have read The House That She Built, a story that helps broaden horizons for girls and boys.”
“A one-of-a-kind book for educating children and parents about the skilled trades. Sharing stories of successful women and careers in construction is important for building our workforce and for making the world a better place. As a woman owned company, it is especially rewarding for 84 Lumber to participate in this project.”
