Windows by Julia Denos, illustrated by E. B. Goodale - ADVISABLE

Denos, Julia Windows, illustrated by E. B. Goodale.  PICTURE BOOK.  Candlewick Press, 2017.  $16.  9780763690359

A young man goes on a walk as it’s getting dark and sees what people are doing through their windows.  Some are dancing, some are watching tv, or eating dinner.  But the best window is his own home, where is mom is waiting and watching for him to return. 

The story has a nostalgic feel as if the reader is also going on a familiar walk.  The illustrations are an intriguing combination of light and dark, and the beautiful colors of a sunset.
