Walking his dog at dusk, one boy catches glimpses of the lives around him in this lovely ode to autumn evenings, exploring your neighborhood, and coming home. Before your city goes to sleep, you might head out for a walk, your dog at your side as you go out the door and into the almost-night. Anything can happen on such a walk: you might pass a cat, or a friend, or even an early raccoon. And as you go down your street and around the corner, the windows around you light up one by one until you are walking through a maze of paper lanterns, each one granting you a brief, glowing snapshot of your neighbors as families come together and folks settle in for the night. With a setting that feels both specific and universal and a story full of homages to The Snowy Day, Julia Denos and E. B. Goodale have created a singular book -- at once about the idea of home and the magic of curiosity, but also about how a sense of safety and belonging is something to which every child is entitled.

At a first glance, as an adult, this is a super quick read about what a boy walking his dog sees inside neighborhood houses, through the windows. It‘s over in the blink of an eye. However, I could see this being a good bedtime story where the child talks through what they see in each window. It may even be fun to make up stories to go with the people/activities in those windows. #cmlibrary #communityreads

Awk_Word_Smith My son loved this one. 8mo
DogMomIrene Sounds interesting! And as someone who walks my dogs all the time, I wonder what they see. How they perceive the world. 8mo
Chrissyreadit Now I‘m totally curious about how you like Charlotte? Also if you want to meet up Friday April 22 for dinner (any places with vegan options?) my email is chrissyreadit@gmail.com 8mo

#BiblioMAYnia Day 13: The story has a soothing tone, indicative of an environment that is free from strife, violence, or danger. If the faces from outside the windows are any indication, it also appears to be a multi-racial neighbourhood. The emotion that I felt after I read the book was one of gratitude; that safe places such as these exist, and that there is an expectant face outside one‘s window, welcoming one #home. https://wp.me/pDlzr-kAo

I expected Olive to be more enthusiastic about this book, which is literally about taking your dog for a walk, but I guess there is just no stand-in for the real thing. #dogsoflitsy #kidlit #storytime

I have been trying to update my dad‘s computer for the last two days, and it still won‘t install the new update. Am I the only one dealing with this issue?

Cute story about exploring a city neighborhood and getting a glimpse into the lives of its residents through their windows. I grew up in the city and always walked around my neighborhood (this was back when parents let you walk everywhere by yourself), so I could relate. 🌆

When I work from "home," I typically work at my local library. I love this big picture window that looks into the woods. It's beautiful and peaceful all year long. #supportyourlocallibrary

Some say the eyes are the #windows to the soul. I say books are the windows, but eyes could work, too, I guess. 👀
