What else can you do to foster story telling?
Wordless books are exactly what the term implies—books that tell a story, but without printed story text. Instead, wordless books rely on the illustrations to draw readers into the tales they tell. The illustrators of wordless books communicate emotion, humor, and engaging detail without writing a single word. Though an author of a wordless book may have had his own story to tell, each book is a blank slate when it is read by your child.
