A wordless, visually compelling look at our changing environment, featured on a government reading list for schools. 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. By the time the boy is twenty, the village has developed into a city. The young man gets married, has a child of his own and moves to the country, where father and child look through the window of their new home at the undeveloped wilderness outside. Illustrated with elaborate and gorgeous collage constructions, Window is a wordless picture book that speaks volumes.

Enchanting -

As a teacher who works with SEN pupils, I have long been a fan of books without words. Window is my all-time favourite. I see more in it each time I look at it.

The illustrations are created by using collage. They in themselves are intriguing - what materials has Jeannie Baker used to create the broken window halfway through the book? What has she made the trees out of?

But the real value of this book lies in the depiction of changes through time & the clear message of the impact on the environment as we need to build more and more homes.

Suitable for any age group from toddlers to pensioners.
