Belonging

By Jeannie Baker
Illustrated by Jeannie Baker

A powerful account of the reclamation of an urban landscape told wordlessly through fascinating, detailed collage artwork.

Observed through the window of a house, a city street gradually becomes a place to call home as the inhabitants begin to rescue their street by planting grass and trees in the empty spaces. Year by year, everything begins to blossom... Told wordlessly and with stunning collage illustrations, Belonging explores the re-greening of the city and the role of community, the empowerment of people and the significance of children, family and neighbourhood in changing the urban environment for the better.

  • An impressive conservationist work with a hopeful message.
  • Winner of the 2005 Wilderness Society Award for Children's Literature, Picture Book category. A 2005 Notable Book by the American Library Association.
  • Belonging is the companion to Window.
