Outside My Window

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Jamey Christoph. In this meditation, thirteen children from around the world take turns describing--in faultless rhyme--what they see out their windows (e.g., "A line of brownstone buildings, / grown-ups walking fast. / Strollers roll, pooches pull, / toddlers waddle past"). For his part in this soft-touch globalism primer, dexterous illustrator Christoph adapts his palette and tone to suit each milieu.
