Favorite Find Friday: ZOOM

It’s Favorite Find Friday, woot woot! This week we are going to look at a fabulous book. I love books so so so much and my classroom library is booming with new finds all the time! This week’s book is not new (written in 1998), but hopefully new to you!

I love any book, but a wordless book is always magical.  This week’s find is the book Zoom by Istvan Banyai that takes readers on a journey of zooming out with many twists, turns and what I like to call, “fake-outs.”  This is a great book to just have and read, but also a great catalyst for envisioning brilliant artwork.  One year I had my students make their own “frames” of zooming (see below), and I would also imagine kids could make really cool books inspired by Zoom!

  1. Alexandra,
    i assume you are familiar with the sequel to Zoom called Rezoom. Starting with a very close-up illustration, each turn of the page brings that picture into a wider and wider focus, the opposite of Zoom.
    If not, check it out!
