This is a book with no pictures that is a great way for children to think abstractly. There are 2 books that are a window to each other, and toward the end of the book, both children end up in the same book while someone else finds the other. This book is a great way to visualize perspective. ( )

26 months - cute book, well designed, a great story and no words required. ( )

This Caldecott Honor book is the story of a girl and a red book she finds on the sidewalk, and the power of imagination to transport you far, far away.

I loved the almost minimalist simplicity of the illustrations. They made it all the more surreal, in my own opinion. Well, as the saying goes, a good book will take a reader on a journey - why couldn't the converse be true? ( )

I never thought a book with no words could be so great. This book allows readers to interpret their own story, and left a class of college students guessing what would happen next. There are no words to define the character's traits or thoughts, only illustrations, definitely teaches the power of pictures. ( )
