The House That Went on Strike is an adorable original story from Jumping Pages, Inc. that tells the tale of an unkempt house that becomes fed-up and has to team up with the appliances to get its family to shape up! The story is narrated by former Congresswoman Patricia Schroeder, who does such a great job of bringing this fun story to life. The story is also brought to life on every page with interactive animation that allows the reader to touch and play.

Not only is this a wonderful story to read with your little ones, I was so impressed by the graphics and production quality. Each page is beautifully illustrated, I found myself looking through it over and over again because I enjoyed the illustrations so much. The story also carries a wonderful message of self respect and the importance of pitching in.

I was laughing to myself while reading it, because it reminded me of a time when I was little and my mother proclaimed one day while cleaning a mountain of dirty dishes that she was going to “go on strike,” much like the house does in the story. Well, it only took a couple of days of my mother striking to whip us into shape, but you’ll have to read this story to find out what becomes of the messy house and its family in “The House That Went on Strike.”
