From My Window
Otávio Júnior, illustrations by Vanina Starkoff


What do you see from your window? This #OwnVoices picture book from Brazil offers a first-hand view of what children growing up in the favelas of Rio de Janiero see everyday. A vibrant and diverse celebration of urban community living, brought to life by unique, colorful illustrations that juxtapose brick buildings with lush jungle plants.


Otávio Júnior is a Brazilian writer, actor, storyteller and theater producer. He opened the first library in the favelas of Complexo de Penha and Alemao in Rio de Janiero.
