No Words Necessary

You pick a picture book to share with your kids, open it up and words! Ack! Actually, this is a great way to share a book with your child. Sharing a wordless picture book may even encourage more complex language between a child and parent. Try one of these wordless stories. As you read follow your child's lead in asking questions and developing the story. You may find that the story changes each time you look at the book.

Flotsam by David Wiesner. A camera washes up on the shore. When a boy develops the film he finds evidence of a strange underwater world.

Adventures of Polo by Regis Faller. A dog has adventures with whales, volcanoes and space ships.

The Chicken Thief by Beatrice Rodriguez. A fox steals a chicken but doesn't eat it. Why?
