This is an interesting book that focuses on perspectives. At the beginning of the book you see one thing, then the book continually zooms out and you realize that what you saw in the beginning was not what you though it was going to be. Teachers can use this book for predicting and inferencing. ( )

Zoom is a wordless picture book. It is appealing to children of all ages. I like this book because it requires students to use their imagination, because there are no words. A fun activity to do with this book would be to have the students write their own story using the pictures. It is interesting to see what the students come up with.

This book is about seeing something then zooming out to see that on something and zooming out some more to see it on something else. It shows us that everything is connected in some form or fashion. I would use this book in classes from first to fifth grade. I would use this book for inferencing and predicting strategies. ( )

Zoom is an excellent perspective book that allows students to make predictions that may be mistrew through the context of the book. Throughout the story, the reader does not know the context of the image they are seeing and are often times perceiving it incorrectly. This book is an excellent tool to use when teaching setting, context, predicting, and writing perspective. ( )

This is a wordless picture book that begins with a close up of the crown on a rooster, then continues to pull back so that we see objects from farther away to be revealed as toys, postcards, and stamps until at last we see a pilot in a place that is looking down on the source of these objects, then we pull back even further to see that the earth is just a speck in space.
