It's that time of year. Parents in a hurry to find a new home before the school year begins are combing open houses and the Sunday paper. But while amenities such as attached garages, finished basements and glamour baths play well with adults, we wondered if the kids tagging at their heels were equally enthralled.

Real-estate agents and builders take note: Here's what the under-10 market is looking for in a dream home:
- "My dream house is just like Bill Gates' house. I have so much money, I gave a lot to Harvest for Hunger. I also sent one arcade game there, too. I keep five poor people in my house. I keep them there for five years or less. They are very nice people, so I let them stay very long."
- My dream home is not like most others. It would have a huge library with half autobiographies. The other half would be mysteries. My younger sister would live with me. My house would be painted teal. There would be five floors and 20 rooms. One room would be empty so I could change its meaning. The lawn would be pure and green. My garden would be half flowers. My dream home is still my dream."
- "My dream home will have a baseball field. Also, my home will have a football field, too! It will have a hot tub and a pool that sparkles like a diamond!"
