Edition: Paperback -- Plot Summary and Book Review
- "Zoom" by Istvan Banyai is a wordless book with bold pictures and vivid illustrations. At each turn of the pages, pictures zoom out to show a receding perspective. For example, the story without words first shows the crest of a rooster, then the top part of the rooster, then kids looking at the rooster, then animals outside the barn where the kids are in, so on and so forth. The last picture zooms to outer space where the earth is only a tiny sphere. "Zoom" is a good book for kids in kindergarten and first grade. Older children and adults can learn about how perspectives affect the way we view our world.
