Houses and Homes

To me a house is an empty place where no one lives yet, no families, no people in it. A home is where a family lives. I live in a home with love, kindness and happiness. I love my home because my pets and friends are close. My favourite part of my home is my family. I love my mom, dad and sister. Maybe you don’t have a sister or a brother, that’s ok we all have different families. All the homes and houses are different to me. My home is very special and wonderful. For you your home might be scary or fun maybe even depressing and sad. My home is a lot of fun. When I’m at home I feel safe, happy and secure. That is what home means to me.
