It is important to talk  to children about their houses sensitively. There
are  different kinds of houses, this has been kept in mind  and hence,
instead of rooms we have used ‘parts of a house’. That some family
members go or do not go to certain parts of the house, reflect the family
traditions and gender biases.
You must have seen that some animals also live with us in
our houses. Some of these animals live with us because we
want them to, while some are there uninvited.

You always tell me mother
The house belongs only to us,
But how do I believe that mother,
When I know it belongs to many more.
Look mother, how these mice,
Are all playing ‘catch-catch’ together,
And look how these mosquitoes fly,
Any how peaceful lies the happy spider.
And look mother at the lazy lizard,
How slowly it crawls to and fro,
And look at so many black ants,
All marching in a row.
And look outside in the courtyard,
The birds are all pecking about,
Just like when my sister and I,
Sometimes fight, quarrel and shout.
That is why I say,dear mother,
Don’t think this house is only ours,
It’s dear to us and all who live here,
And have been living for many years.

Rats have poor eye sights but
