Wordless Picture Books

Posted on Updated on

People normally associate picture books with well, pictures. There doesn’t have to be any text to understand the book. A picture truly can be worth a thousand words. Wordless picture books can be used in many ways. I’m going to review completely wordless picture books about twice a month.

Here are some elements that can be used with wordless picture books. Of course, many of these elements can be used with any book.

  1. Sparks imagination. 
  2. Understand basic story structure (beginning, middle, end)
  3. Increases & enhances vocabulary that isn’t on the page.
  4. Mixed reading levels and ages are on a level playing field.
  5. Make story predictions through the illustrations.
  6. Create dialog between characters on the same page.
  7. Examine the character’s actions and traits.
  8. Promotes creativity.
  9. Encourages interaction with the book.
  10. It’s fun to read!
