A group of children find magic chalk that brings their drawings to life. The illustrations are hyper-realistic, leading the book to feel like a true story. ( )

This kind of realistic illustrative mastery speaks volumes. Color, light and shade, and a mastery of the human form make this story come to life, and make the dinosaur quite scary. Kids will love the concept of a dinosaur that springs to life after a chalk drawing. ( )

For a book with no words you can definitely make a story out of this book which I love. This leaves the imagination up to the students which keeps them engaged. I love seeing their imaginations shine. The illustrations are unreal. They are amazing and I loved them. They are so captivating. This is a book that anyone could love.

Chalk is wordless, but the images are powerful. Bill Thomson's realistic art style will stun you; you will feel like you are looking a photographs as you follow along with a story of children who find magic chalk that turns everything they draw into real life.

This book is about a group of kids on a rainy day headed to the park. At the park, they see a container of chalk. The kids start drawing things like sunshine, which makes the rain go away. One child decides to draw a dinosaur that ends up scaring them! Then, they decide to draw rain again which washes the dinosaur away. They leave the park with the chalk left for the next brave child. It is a tale of imagination that leaves kids minds wandering.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0761455264, School & Library Binding)

A rainy day. Three kids in a park. A dinosaur spring rider. A bag of chalk. The kids begin to draw. . . and then . . . magic! The children draw the sun, butterflies, and a dinosaur that amazingly come to life. Children will never feel the same about the playground after they experience this astounding wordless picture book and the power of the imagination. Bill Thomson embraced traditional painting techniques and meticulously painted each illustration by hand, using acrylic paint and colored pencils.
