Wordless Picture Books

"Though wordless books contain little or no text, they have a real story to tell.  Readers must examine details and expressions carefully to interpret the stories from the pictures.  This helps children focus on the sequence in the stories and gives them the opportunity to use “book language.”" Making up stories with wordless picture books helps children develop narrative skills. To find wordless picture books in the library catalog, do a “subject search” on “stories without words.”
