Window by Jeannie Baker
*CBCA Awards, Picture Book of the Year Award, 1992 - Winner
A wordless account of the reclamation of an urban landscape told through fascinating, detailed collage artwork.
Illustrated with elaborate and gorgeous collage constructions, Window is a wordless picture book that speaks volumes. It begins with a mother and baby looking 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, from forest, to a single house, to a village and then to a city.
- '...a very moving, sophisticated picture book...illustrated with wonderfully detailed collages.' Nursery Education
- Window is the companion to Belonging.
