Zoom, by Istvan Banyai

zoom2If you’re looking for something to quiet those chatty sixth graders, stand up, hold up the book Zoom, tell them that they’ll miss everything if they don’t watch every page, and start turning pages.  With each page turn, my students ooohed and aahed until the end of the book.  Zoom is a book that I find amazing in its concept, zooming in on the smallest detail and then zooming out over and over again.  I absolutely loved it, as did my students.  No need for words; and, the silence in that room was just bliss.  Highly recommended as a “read aloud” for older students.
