Read full description of the books:
I really liked this book and would definitely recommend it for children of all ages. The book consists of a series of pictures of a landscape, framed by a bedroom window. The bedroom belongs to a boy, and as he grows older you see how the landscape changes. Beginning as a rural, unspoiled setting, the view gradually transforms into an urban, built up environment.
The illustrations are brilliant, and have a physical depth to them, that makes them seem almost raised from the page, as if in 3D.
An interesting feature of the book is that Baker doesn't use any words at all, leaving the pictures alone to tell the story. This, I think, makes it a great book to look at with children, in groups or individually, to see what they think is happening. It would be really interesting to see how different children interpret the illustrations differently.
In a sense, the reader gets to be the storyteller with this book, so it could be a great way to exercise children's imagination, verbal and written skills, to tell the story as they see it.
