Through my Window

Publisher: Frances Lincoln

Review

Jo is ill and has to stay in bed for the day, but her mum promises her to bring her home a surprise to make her feel better. Through the day she watches for her return, seeing the variety of delivery people, neighbours and animals who come to her street, offering a springboard to readers for role-play games.

Jo's is a multicultural community, its roles shared among the genders (dad stays to tend Jo, the window cleaner is a woman), and the text and illustrations are a bold, colourful, vibrant representation of the riches this offers our world.
