Abstract

In the wordless picture book Home by Jeannie Baker, we watch baby Tracy grow as her family and neighbors work together to gradually turn a cold unfriendly city street into a beautiful friendly place to call home. In this lesson designed for ages 4-8, students explore change over time in the book Home and later in themselves by interviewing their parents and constructing a timeline book of their lives.
