Home is a Window

Chris Sasaki

Home can be many things--a window, a doorway, a rug . . . or a hug. At home, everything always feels the same: comfortable and safe.

But sometimes things change, and a home must be left behind.

Follow a family as they move out of their beloved, familiar house and learn that they can bring everything they love about their old home to the new one, because they still have each other.

★ "The latest picture book by Ledyard, author of the critically acclaimed Pie Is for Sharing, is beautifully illustrated by Pixar animator Sasaki. Ledyard's sweet text describing home pairs seamlessly with Sasaki's rich and detailed illustrations, which further show all that home can be."—School Library Journal, starred review

★ "Ledyard offers a meditation of sorts on the sense of comfort and belonging that home should evoke, whether it's a place we know well or a new home to which we've just moved.... With a style that recalls the work of Jon Klassen and Christian Robinson(while still his own), Sasaki offers a rich interpretation of Ledyard's spare, poetic text."—Horn Book Magazine, starred review

"Ledyard's extemporaneous text leaves wide berth for kids to amplify and personalize the story--as does Sasaki's whimsical, tranquil digital art, which features an amalgam of patterns and geometric shapes. Emphasizing the comfort of the familiar and the promise of new beginnings, this book provides a conversation prompt for families making a move."—Publishers Weekly  

"This sweet, emotionally perceptive book will help make any transition from old to new less scary."—Kirkus
