Description

Do you ever feel lost when it comes to how to read a wordless book?


I’m convinced that some of the very best picture books being published today are wordless. They invite us to slow down, predict what will come next, make connections, and linger over a good story, well-told.


Today I’m excited to share some of the best ones with you, as well as a simple guide for how to read them.


In this episode, you’ll hear:



  • why wordless books are worth our time

  • how to read a wordless books (with tips for what to say as you turn the pages)

  • just a few favorites 😉


I also answer a question about how to handle vocabulary when homeschooling, and if listening to books and reading are enough on their own. (Spoiler: ✔️)

Quote to remember:



“The best picture books tell half of the story in the illustrations. You’re missing a lot if you don’t linger over those pictures. And a wordless book invites us to linger… because there’s nothing else to do!”
