"My house rocks me to sleep at night. I hear the water lapping the sides of our boat, lapping the sides, lapping the sides. So gently I am getting sleepy."

No matter where we are in the world, we are all under the stars. In this poetic take on geography, children describe the homes they live in under the stars: Sergio on the 17th floor of a Brazilian skyscraper, Carmen on a boat in the Philippines, Chili in the southwestern United States.
