Native speaker’s answer

Rebecca

"How" in this scenario means the way or condition in which; about the manner or condition in which. Piglet uses "how" because she is describing the conditions that her friends live in (in houses) and how Eeyore doesn't have the same conditions (doesn't have a house) as they do. Ex: I can't figure out how to get to the airport from here. Ex: She doesn't know how to swim.
