We love picture books and of course the more reading practice the better, right? But have you considered the value in wordless picture books? Wordless picture books can stretch the imagination and provide a great opportunity for story creating and story telling. Wordless picture books are not just for toddlers, I’m not talking about board books here. I mean children’s books with beautiful pictures, but no words at all. My kids love to come up with a new story each time or share and come up with different parts of a story, so they are creating it together. These can be really fun to look at together as a family. They also encourage attention to detail. Here is a list of our favorite wordless picture books.

Wordless books were always are favorites too. I can’t imagine how many different renditions of Goodnight Gorilla we have come up with. That one (finding the balloon!) will always be so special.
