This is a Scottish Folk song set to illustrations. As a child, the author heard her father sing the song, and his father sang it to him and so on. The book contains sheet music in the back.
This is a story of a very generous man who lives in a two room house with 11 other people, yet he insists to any traveler who passes by that they come on in saying there is always room for one more! When a house full of people literally bring the house down, he is rewarded in turn.
I enjoyed this one because it has a good message of generosity and making friends and the rhythm of the song made it fun to read. I had to read it in my best Scottish accent!
What is interesting about the illustrations in this book is the way the people and the house are drawn in a series of straight lines in black ink with clearly defined shapes. The people contrast with the scenery which is abstract pastel colors. ( )

In this illustrated book written after a Scottish folk song with the same name, a Scottish family is generous and always inviting someone passing by into the home to stay. This book is written with some Scottish words in place of English words making it a bit difficult to read if not familiar with the language. Although it is a well written book, this is not a book that would peak the interest of children in a classroom, however, could be used as a mentor text for a student researching the Scottish culture.

From the Book Jacket: To his “wee house in the heather” where he lives with his wife and ten children, the good-natured Lachie MacLachlan invites every traveler who passes on a stormy night, assuring all that “There’s always room for one more.”

My reactions:

Sorche Nic Leodhas drew inspiration from a traditional Scottish song that has been handed down through the generations. Lachie is a generous host, and even when his house is literally full to bursting, he doesn’t despair, and everyone to whom he’s offered shelter pitches in to help him build a bigger and better house, where once again “There’s always room for one more.”

The author explains in a note at the end of the book that some of the words were changed to make it more understandable for American children, but other Scottish words were kept because there simply wasn’t a reasonable English alternative. There is a glossary at the end of the book. The book also includes the musical notes, so readers can plunk out the tune on the piano.

Nonny Hogrogian was awarded the Caldecott Medal for her illustrations. I appreciate her artwork, but they don’t really capture my attention or move me. ( )

Always Room for One More had the honor of winning the Caldecott Medal. The story is about a Scottish family who invited anyone and everyone into their home who was traveling and needed a place to stay. This is because their house "always had room for one more." Then eventually the house falls. Everyone complained but then Lachie says they need to build a new one that would always have room for one more and they did. The story itself is a really nice message because who today can say they would open up their house for anyone in need? But, for me, it was hard to read. One, because it is written in a poem or song form. Two, it has a lot of Scottish words I am not familiar with and I didn't understand. In the back of the book their is a glossary for those words. The illustrations in the book are not too colorful but they are nice looking. I wasn't too wild about the book myself but I wouldn't mind reading it to my class of kids. ( )

Always Room for One More is a children's book about a Scottish family that invited weary travelers into their home through song. The main character, Lachine, is the father who plays the bagpipes as he insists that there is always room for one more in their home. I enjoyed this book. One reason why I enjoyed it was because of the illustrations. Although they are not very colorful, they do an excellent job at depicting the simple life style of this rural Scottish family. The simple colors and simply drawings showcase that what matters to this family is not luxury but simply being together and being good people. Another reason why I liked this book was because of the writing. I felt that the writing did an excellent job of showcasing the Scottish heritage. The father was constantly saying how he is gentlemen and was raised to be hospitable. I felt that this book depicted the values and morals of the Scottish heritage without being too obvious.
