Looking Down



Description

If you were an astronaut traveling far out in space and you looked at the earth, what would you see? A small ball in the huge black universe. That's where these pictures begin. Then they move closer and closer to the earth, each view revealing new details. Until finally . . . See for yourself.In this wordless picture book with stunning cut-paper illustrations, Steve Jenkins masterfully depicts the many levels of the universe, from the farthest reaches of space to the most familiar corner of your backyard.

Publisher Marketing:

In this wordless picture book, readers first see Earth as the astronauts do, as a small ball in the black universe. As the point of view moves gradually closer, we can see continents and oceans, then the East Coast of the United States, then a town (an imaginary one), until, finally, we are looking through a boy's magnifying glass at a ladybug. In his remarkable and detailed cut-paper illustrations, the artist takes us on an amazing journey from outer space to a young boy's front yard.
