Built Together, which fans can pre-order on Amazon, is described as a mix of humor and heart, while celebrating diversity “as you are reminded just how wonderful it is to be part of your own unique family.” The description also reads, “Strong families, like strong houses, have sturdy foundations built on trust, love, and a whole lot of TLC.” Clearly as the title suggests, this book ties in Starsiak Hawk’s experience rehabbing homes as it relates to creating a family, no matter how it comes together.
According to House Beautiful, the illustrations in the book represent her and husband, Steve Hawk, as well as their two kiddos, Charlotte and big brother, Jack. Meanwhile, on her Instagram Story, the newly-minted children’s book writer joked about her new project, “it’s like the cool thing, everyone works on a kid’s book now” (via Pop Culture). She also elaborated on the theme of the book, saying, “It’s a good way to show kids that your family’s who you make it. And I always talk about how it takes a village, so it’s just kind of about how you create your own village.”
