Wonders of Wordless magic

I have a kind of love affair going on with wordless books. There is something magical about getting to the end of one feeling like you have read a very detailed story. Yet, not one word graced the page. Such potential for oral language and retelling . . . Some more of my favourite wordless books – both old and new. ( A recent post on wordless books: Few words on five wordless books can be found here)

Fascination with our mirror image – from joy to despair.

Chalk by Bill Thomson

Does every piece of chalk hold amazing potential? What is really real?

Oops by Arthur Geisert

One disaster inevitably leads to another. Note to self: House built on a cliff? Maybe not the best idea!

Let Canadian Art take you anywhere and everywhere!

The next two wordless picture books were sourced by my husband from used book stores and given to me over 15 years ago. They hold an important place on my book shelves! Unfortunately, it is as challenging to find images of these books as it is to find the books themselves!

The Yellow Umbrella by Henrik Drescher


Where in the world can a yellow umbrella take two monkeys?

Mighty Mizzling Mouse by Friso Henstra

The ultimate mouse chase. And the winner? Do you need to ask?
