With an enthusiastic flair, a little boy moves through his house and beyond imaginatively painting rooms, adding windows, creating a song about a doorknob, and last, but not least, making an ocean which surrounds his dream house in which his friends all live.


The FLP Library Shop offers charming literary gifts for any occasion, including signed books, mugs, tote bags, stationery, and more—many featuring designs inspired by Library’s own special collections.

Proceeds from shop sales benefit the Free Library of Philadelphia—advancing literacy, guiding learning, and inspiring curiosity every day!
