Crossing 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

This beautifully illustrated book, drawn to a lovely poem holds the potential of opening dialogue between the generations. The younger generation concentrates on the pictures, to learn what the function is of each car, crossing, or signal. The older generation is looking at memories. Reading this book together is a natural collision of the eagerness to learn with the memories of the learned. The questions will be asked and it is up to the experienced adult to answer with their learned knowledge, memories, and heart.

Certainly the illustrations are beautiful, but I find this book more appealing to adults than youngsters. The text, a slow and rhythmic poem, is too slow and the book lacks plot and direction. Without the illustrations it would not be of remote interest to children. Ibatoulline's illustrations are interesting, and masterfully done in gouache and present unique angles but still are slow after a while because there's only so much he can do with undynamic text, which I've witnessed children abandon before the end of the book.
