    Louie is a little boy in a new and unfamiliar place. He has moved and is without his friends and comfort zone. He makes a box to look into that reminds him of his old city and friends. He spends the afternoon daydreaming of this trip until his mother awakes him from his thoughts. This is good to read to students who may have just moved and are settling into a new area and making new friends. Perfect for 2nd or 3rd grades.

    A boy moves into a neighborhood where he doesn't know anyone. He constructs a peep show of his old neighborhood and takes an imaginary trip by to his old neighborhood. He joins his old friends where they fly around with him. He soon comes back to reality when his mother calls him to go with the new neighbors to go Trick or Treating.

    Great book, I had never read a Keats book where the main character was not African-American. I was happy to see multicultural characters through out the book as well. I think it was great how Keats was able to take a snapshot of one moment in time when a child day dreams.

    This story is about the loneliness of moving to a new place for a child and that you can make friends any were you go. very homesick, like most children would experience, Louie finds a way to cope, by making a shoe box model of where he used to live. But soon, Louie will discover that he doesn't need to use his imagination to find friends. He finds them in his new neighborhood.Ages 4-8
