Books Without Words
Some of my very favorite children’s books have no words – instead, illustrations tell the story. These books are not only a joy to see and experience, they teach our kids the power of art to communicate and express feeling.
Flotsam is a book about a magical camera which washes up on a beach and is found by a curious boy.
Barbara Lehman has written several great books in this genre including, The Red Book, Rainstorm, The Secret Box, and Museum Trip.
Museum Trip tells a story about what might happen if a boy suddenly became part of one of the museum’s exhibits.
Some of the stories are more intricate than others, but even the simplest stories are beautiful when told via the artwork alone.
Wave is a story about a little girl who spends a day at the beach engaging in imaginative play with an ocean wave.
Chalk is a story of three children who find a bag of chalk in a playground. To their amazement, everything they draw becomes real.
