By K. Wilson on July 6, 2005
Format: Hardcover
Changes, Changes is a wordless picture book showing a couple made of wooden blocks constructing building blocks to make a home. The home catches on fire and they build a fire engine to put the fire out. However, the water causes a flood and they then have to build a boat to sail away on. They arrive safely on shore and build a truck and then a train and, eventually, a new home.

I would recommend this book for children ages 3, 4, and 5. Children these ages enjoy making up stories to go along with wordless books. Many of them also take pleasure in playing with building blocks and will enjoy the images of the blocks being built into various things. In addition, the personification of the couple made out of wooden blocks will appeal to young children. I recommend sharing this book with children for enjoyment. The illustrations were prepared with black pen-and-ink line drawings and separate overlays for the colors. The images do a wonderful job of telling the story without text.

This little book is on my entering kindergartener's Summer Reading List and I can certainly understand why. Pat Hutchins tells, without text, the story of how a family overcomes adversity. With colorful artwork and blocks which most children have seen and played with, she demonstrates how thinking and creativity can lead to solutions.

As with most good wordless books for pre- and early readers, it offers the opportunity for children to make up stories to fit the pictures. Such skills are well associated with success in learning to read.

[See also Tomie dePaola's stories for more excellent opportunities to practice reading skills.]

I am an early childhood educator. I use this book with blocks, similar to what is pictured. I have children make simple stick puppets. The children then have an opportunity to respond to this fine wordless book with their own ideas.....

I recommend this book because of the way it helps non-readers (3-5's) read. We "read" it as a class and discussed it as a large group. I then placed it in the theme book basket. Students often picked it up, "read" it, and talked about it with their peers and with me. They demonstrated great pre-literacy skills with it. This book is also a nice way to talk about shapes, so it connects math with reading. I think it could be used with ELL students as well. They could share vocabulary with the teacher and the teacher could share vocabulary with them.

Wonderful book.. Pat Hutchins is one of my favorite authors. This book is great for preschool age children and younger school age children who are learning about shapes. I love that there are no words to the story. It gives children a wonderful opportunity to create their own dialogue from looking at the pictures. The pictures are bright and colorful and definitely eye catching. Highly recommended!

I love the pictures and the imaginative "story" they tell. I am a preschool teacher and use this book to start a conversation about what we can use our blocks for. The children sometimes try to build things from the book!

I have an old VHS with this story put to music and have used it sometimes after using the book. It shows the "action" of the story.

This was one of the first books my mother and father shared with me when I was a child. To this day I can still recall sitting with them and making up a story about this little family made of wood. It moved me to tears. The pictures show the family building a home out of blocks. The home catches on fire and the family is distressed. They perservered, however, and re-built their home. Through adversity, hardship, and inevitable changes, love and the bonds of a family saw them through to find happiness once again. Definitely share this wonderful picture book with the children in your lives.

I "read" this wordless book to my preschool class and they loved it. It's a great book to do an interactive reading with your child. Have your child read it to you! It's also a good book for teaching colors and transportation.
