The first children book I have read with NO WORDS! I didn't even think it was possible but it is and it works so well here. Definitely one of my favorites because it really tells a story. A great adventure so great that if she had put it in words it would not have done the tale any justice. ( )

This is another great wordless picture book in which the reader can tell a new story each time the pages are flipped through. I liked the book because it has a sense of adventure to it. I feel like children in grades 1-3 would especially like this book, and love to come up with various words to go along with the pictures. ( )

This is a Circulatory wordless picture book about a boy who found a red book and inside the book is a picture of the previous person that had the book. The person that previously had the book, has the book opened to a page of the person that had the book before. The book continues this theme throughout the book with the little boy releasing the book for the next person to read.
This is a good book to use for students when teaching a lesson over description, prediction, and context clues. There are no words in the book so the students have to rely on context clues and description to predict the plot of the story. ( )

"The Red Book" is full of beautiful and detailed illustrations that make it easy to understand what it happening in the story. It is all over a little red book that is found in New York, and two children find themselves looking in the book, looking at one another. This is a fun interactive book for young children to engage in conversation about the meaning for each picture. ( )

In my opinion, this is a good book to start out with kindergarteners and ELL's. The Red Book is a wordless picture book about two friends traveling the world to meet each other. Through pictures, the child (or mentor) is allowed to make up his or her own story. The characters are very well-developed and vivid. For example, you can clearly tell that the girl is the main character by the way she is focused in on the illustrations. She is often on the page alone, or in class everyone is paying attention and she is doing something else. I think that the plot is very organized. Despite the fact that the child can create his or her own storyline, the overall buildup is how the girl gets the friend who lives in another country (or state). This is great for kids who cannot read yet. The moral of this story is that no matter how different people are, anyone can be friends. ( )
