Synopsis

Window by Jeannie Baker

Stunning and unique mixed media collages will amaze readers in this powerful, eco-conscious picture book by the internationally renowned Jeannie Baker. In this visually compelling look at our changing environment by Jeannie Baker, illustrator of the critically-acclaimed Mirror and Where the Forest Meets the Sea, a mother and baby look through a window at a view of wilderness and sky as far as the eye can see. With each page, the boy grows and the scene changes. At first, in a clear patch of forest, a single house appears. A few years pass and there is a village in the distance...When the boy is twenty, will he recognize the view from his window? Illustrated with elaborate and gorgeous collage constructions, Window is a wordless picture book that speaks volumes.

Reviews

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
