Zoom! Istvan Banyai

Zoom is one of my favorite wordless books!  Istvan Banyai takes the reader on a journey through a series of "zoomed" illustrations as four of the pages below show.  The book is cleverly designed and my students love making predictions and following the story.  My classes made up the story to go with the book and my digital art class used photographs and mirrored the book by creating 4 of their own zoomish photos and displayed them together. 

Here my students took photo's of themselves to be part of the title of the book!
