325O: Picture book about boy growing up and his changing backyard

This book captivated my imagination with colorful illustrations (I believe they were mixed media/collage/claymation – something unusual).  We see the boy growing up and the changes in his backyard/neighborhood.  I believe it focuses on the growth of the plants and changing that reflects him growing up, but also urban development, possibly construction or a dump.  There were themes of environmentalism perhaps regarding pollution.  I read this book in the late 90’s or early 2000’s.  I believe the boy was white with brown or blonde hair.  I think most of it focused on him in the window and the view outside.

Thanks so much!

  1. I believe this book is Window by Jeannie Baker as it utilises mixed media and, as the title suggests focuses on a growing boys view from his window.
