Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

I always like to support local authors, and that's certainly not a challenge with Inside Outside. My daughter is studying art/graphic design through her high school's vocational tech center, and she was the first to say she wished they'd had more books like this when she was a child. Artistically, it's a visual treat.

Inside Outside doesn't have words. It doesn't need them. Instead, the book has children wondering while something is going on inside, what is happening outside. Cut outs with doors and windows allows them to peek into what's happening on the other side of the wall. Flip the page, and the entire scene unfolds.

Another thing to note is that through the story, the seasons change. You're so caught up in the story, that you may miss that the first time around. If you're looking for a story that teaches children about seasons and the world around them, this one is ideal.
