What's the best room in the house?

Is it the kitchen with its wonderful aromas and goodies?

Or is it the front porch, where guests flock to visit on summer nights?

Maybe it's the cozy bedroom, when you are snuggling deep under the covers on winter mornings.

With gracious text and enchanting images, Newbery Medalist Cynthia Rylant and acclaimed illustrator Wendy Anderson Halperin invite readers home -- to remind us why there's no place like it!
