This book is great for both young and old. It is intriguing even though there are no words and the art is beautiful...so much so that I decided to buy her book called Home and was disappointed to now have two identical books but with different covers! So I would recommend that you buy one of them but not both!

Jeannie Baker's books are amazing; as a teacher I have a few of them and find them so versatile - I have used them in art, literacy and geography lessons and feel that they are very beneficial to the children. This one is wordless and has been particularly fantastic with my slower readers as it encourages them to look for a story in the book and takes the pressure away from reading text all the time. There are also many hidden pictures within the pictures - especially in her other book 'Where the Forest Meets the Sea'.

Brilliant to use in school even up to age 12. Excellent for topics on community, the environment and maybe even cross-curricular for looking at measures of time. Cleverly illustrated so that no words are needed to tell the story, so can be used for whole class topics when there are a range of reading abilities in the class. A book you can return to again and again and use cross-curricularly.

Totally amazing book by a very talented lady! My year 3's absolutely love this book during guided reading and it's a real change for them to find a book that doesn't have loads of writing in. It is accessible by every child because they can enjoy it on so many levels Jeannie Baker's art work on each page is just full of hidden secrets just waiting to be spotted by an observant reader and the more you look the more you see. There are lots of things to see, think and wonder at and every page holds the potential for a story, debate or discussion.

Can't recommend it enough!

A fabulous book which engages and teaches in a delightful way. Even though my one grandchild hasn't yet been born and the other is year's away from reading, I've bought two of the series as I feel the message in these books is one as a Granny, I really want to share with my grandchildren.

a strong central theme to this book : changes (good/and or bad) to a community over the years, seen through the eyes of a growing child. Beautifully illustrated and hand-stitched, which captures ambivalent feelings to change. Recommended for all ages.

I have rated this book 4 stars because I was initially disappointed that there was no narrative. However the pictures do tell the story and they are well crafted. A pertinent message inside with lots of images to provoke discussion.

This is my favourite book of Jeannie Baker's. A powerful illustration of time passing and community values. No text makes it a valuable resource to share with readers of all abilities.

Another fantastic jeannie baker book which is the opposite of her book called 'window.' I recommend both if them so much to talk and think about with my five yr old and 7 yr old.

Beautiful as I'd expect from Jeannie Baker. Great message about how a community can make their environment better. I followed up with some great drama work with my Year 1s.
