Always Room For One More

  • Title: Always Room for One More
  • Author: Sorche Nic Leodhas
  • Illustrator: Nonny Hogrogian
  • Publisher: Henry Holt and Company Inc.
  • Publication year: 1965
  • Brief Summary: From Amazon-“Lachie MacLachlan, the generous hero of this enchanting tale, is the exception to the rule that the Scots are a thrifty lot. In his “wee house in the heather,” where he lives with his family of twelve, he welcomes to his hearth every weary traveler who passes by on a stormy night. “There’s always room for one more,” says Lachie, and how his grateful guests say a wonderful “Thank you” provides a delightfully warm and tender ending to this hilarious tale of kindness.”
  • Ideas for using this book in classroom or library – I think this is another picture book that could be used with other disciplines like music. This would also make a great book to use for a read aloud because of the rhyming and cadence.
  • Whatever additional notes you’d like to add about this book and why you liked or didn’t like it –The very simple watercolor and line drawings balance the lyrical text.
