Synopsis

Belonging by Jeannie Baker

A big book account of the reclamation of an urban landscape told wordlessly through fascinating, detailed collage artwork.Observed through the window of a house, a city street gradually becomes a place to call home as the inhabitants begin to rescue their street by planting grass and trees in the empty spaces. Year by year, everything begins to blossom... Told wordlessly and with stunning collage illustrations, Belonging explores the re-greening of the city and the role of community, the empowerment of people and the significance of children, family and neighbourhood in changing the urban environment for the better. This big book version is ideal for sharing with groups of children.
