KIRKUS REVIEW

A fine photographer noted for her concept books has devised another way to challenge children's visual imaginations: windows cut in shiny black pages frame intriguing fragments of photographs that can be seen entire by turning the page; the verso of the whole photo is another photo of the same subject from a greater distance, expanding understanding of the subject and making an opportunity for another framed detail through the verso of the next window page. The pictures--many of them of animals but also including ones of a Ferris wheel, a jack o'lantern, a rose, and a guitar player--are interesting for their subjects as well as for their beautiful design; without a word, they focus the eye on subtle patterns and textures, training the viewer to be an appreciative observer. This should also prove stimulating to older children, and will be of use in language development.
