This beautifully full imaged and colorful book allows for the reader to make his/her own stories and is great for a partner "read" for younger kids. I took a single page and had K students orate their story to me and put it on a large poster paper. Students loved it. I do wish there was a bit more carry over between the pages. This wordless picture book allows for a lot of opportunity, especially with beginning readers, but can also be used in introducing reading comprehension strategies to 2-4th graders. ( )

K-1 students could use this book as they are first learning to read and learning about stories. ( )

"The Adventures of Polo" is almost like a comic book. It has no words but uses pictures to tell the story of a little guy who travels to different unique places. This book is colorful and the illustrations are very detailed. With no words it makes it a little difficult to have any meaning. However, with this book you could have students create their own story by just using the pictures. During read aloud have them make up the story. They then could go create their own picture story like the book and share it with a classmate, they then could have the other classmate tell a story using their drawings. ( )

A wordless book that is formatted into a graphic novel. Polo is out on an adventure to many plaves in the universe with different terrains along the way.

This picture book is really cute with great illustration. like "Chalk" this book too has a focus on imagination and it would be fun for the kids to pretend they are this character in the book.
