When my children were younger, I remember reading them a book by Don Freeman called "Corduroy." It was a sweet book about a stuffed bear named Corduroy that we all enjoyed.
"The Day is Waiting."
It is a simple book, with one sentence or phrase on each page. It talks about getting out of the house to explore the world around us, enjoying the view, then realizing we always have home to return to.
The illustrations have different styles and don't really give the book a harmonizing feel at first glance. But, I understand the reasoning behind the assorted illustrations, so that makes them okay after all.
It is a nice little book to share with your young ones and discuss what "home" means to them. But, I can also see it as being a special graduation gift for your older child. When they are getting ready to see what is "out there" in our world for them to explore, they can take the book with them and it will be a reminder that they can always return home.
