Wordless Picture Books

So what are wordless picture books?

Wordless picture books are stories told entirely through illustrations or with a few words at the beginning and/or end of the book. 

Why read wordless picture books at any age?

One of our favorite parts about wordless picture books is that they can be used at any grade level. In the lower grades, wordless picture books are great for developing students’ sense of plot, sequence, and storytelling. As students skills progress, wordless picture books become a great springboard for talking about imagery, theme, and more.
