it was amazing

The author did a great job in raising environmental issues such as: deforestation concerns, animal extinctions and pollution, all by means of pictures. The illustrations were used to take the reader on a journey from when a family moved into a rural area overlooking a forest to now overlooking many more houses, cars, industrial sites, factories and much more. It showed how the world once was it comparison to what we are familiar with in present day. Each page is similar to the prior, but with something extracted and replaced. For example, the forest becoming smaller due to a row of houses being built. Children are therefore able to interact and engage in a ‘spot the difference’ activity from page to page. This is brilliant, in that, it shows that children need not read pages of texts to understand world concerns, rather, they are able to think for themselves by the use of before and after pictures. The illustrations are clear to understand and so can be used for KS1 and KS2.
