An island is a piece of land that is surrounded by water. This intriguing new book looks at homes on big islands, such as Japan, as well as small islands, such as Cebu in the Philippines. From houses made of concrete and steel to houses built on stilts with thatched roofs, detailed photography shows what these kinds of homes are made from and what they look like inside. Other interesting topics include work, education, and transportation on an island, as well as how people living on islands are affected by extreme temperatures, volcanoes, hurricanes, and rising sea levels. A world map identifies the cities and countries featured in the book.
