Prairie Boy: Frank Lloyd Wright Turns the Heartland into a Home
In this book about Frank Lloyd Wright for kids, young readers will learn all about America’s first world-famous architect.
Frank Lloyd Wright loved the Wisconsin prairie where he was born.
But as his family moved across the United States, young Frank found his own home in shapes: rectangles, triangles, half-moons, and circles.
When he returned to his beloved prairie, Frank pursued a career in architecture, as he didn’t think the Victorian-era homes found there fit the prairie landscape.
Using his knowledge and love of shapes, Frank created houses more organic to the land. He redesigned the American home inside and out, developing a truly unique architecture style.
Author Barb Rosenstock and artist Christopher Silas Neal explore the early life and creative genius of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, highlighting his passion, imagination, and ingenuity, in this STEAM nonfiction picture book.
