Photos Through Time
The pictures in Wiesner's story are worth well more than a thousand words apiece, as the story of an antique camera's journey through time is told. The book is very suspenseful, and I could not wait to see where Wiesner was going with a story that I found reminiscent of the childhood thrill of tying a note to a helium balloon and waiting to discover where it landed. The vivid illustrations nearly jump off the page, especially the odd underwater photos and the action shot toward the end when the boy takes his own picture to add to the collection of photos that have filtered through time. The book will delight young children as they use their own imaginations to tell the story based on the illustrations found within.
