I don’t have shelter

I wrote a book & my granddaughter became extremely quizzical.  She wanted to believe to know how a whole family lived in such a small igloo.  Where did they put their own Christmas tree, & how did they heat the igloo without it just melting.  She wanted to believe just what happened when the place melted in the summertime.  I tried to remind her that it was just a kid’s story, even though she still kept asking questions.  We have all heard about these igloos, & she had some great questions.  How did they just heat the inside, if they didn’t have a nice fireplace, or a good wood stove?  What happened when the summertime came, & they couldn’t have nice air conditioning system, & their place melted.  Did they just camp outside while in the warm summertime?  Were they bothered by the nasty bugs & the heat because they didn’t have shelter or air conditioning system?  Did they just huddle to stay nicely warm, because a fireplace or wood stove would cause enough bad  heat to melt the dwelling?  Maybe the whole igloo thing was just a thing that happened with the nice fisherman, & then he moved back into a real dwelling with a nice fireplace for the Wintertime, when he caught what they needed for their food.  If it was so cold they could build these ice houses, maybe the summertime’s are cool enough, they don’t need any air conditioning system.  There were so many differing questions that I didn’t believe how to answer them.  I told her that both of us would do a few inquiries & reading & find the answers, however for now, it was the penguins that lived in the igloo, & I didn’t guess they worried about heating & cooling.
