Changes, Changes (Aladdin Picture Books)

The little wooden couple are happy in their building-block house — until it catches fire. The solution? They transform the house into a fire engine! But then there’s so much water that they have to build a boat…
The very youngest can “read” this charming, wordless picture book all by themselves.

    Great for sharing with young children, July 6, 2005

    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.]

    Moving Story About A Family Made Of Building Blocks., October 31, 2003

    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.
