This book is fun and adventurous when a little girl finds a book and begins to read notices a little boy in the book reading the same book. She then decides to go on an adventure to meet the boy in the book when she then loses it but makes it safely to the boy. Then watches the adventure continue as they watch someone else find the book.

This book follows a little girl who finds a red book in the snow. The book is about a warm sunny beach, where she wishes she could be. The little girl becomes consumed in the book and believes she is actually at this beach. This book would be great to show children just how involved you can become with the right book. This book leaves the door open for imagination and adventure. ( )

This is a book about a boy and a girl who find a book that they can be friends through in different areas. The book has no words and is a caldecott winner. This is a great book for all ages but i would surely read this to my kindergarten or first grade class. ( )

This book is about a girl and boy who find a red book in two distinct parts of the world. They soon discover that this magical red book lets them see each other even when they are worlds apart. The theme for this book is friendship. This book would be great for children from k-3 because of the whole wordless book and also because it is so easy to imagine your own plot. In instructional use, a teacher can use this book when teaching about context clues or just to help them build up vocabulary from their word wall. ( )

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. ( )
