Zoom is a fun wordless picture book for all ages. The book gradually zooms out to show more of the story. It moves slowly step-by-step zooming out to reveal more. You may think you know where the story is going, but it always keeps you guessing what will be next. I don’t want to describe everywhere that Zoom takes you, since that would spoil it. The story starts at a small element then gradually moves to a more complex environment. Go ahead and guess where the next page zooms out. I included the first three pictures to get a taste of the fun, but it doesn’t wreck the surprises. If you enjoy Zoom the author wrote a similar book, Re-Zoom.
