During the month of September, we are celebrating wordless picture books. I have searched high and low to create a list of classic must have wordless picture books that your child will love.
Wordless picture books are a great way to build literacy skills: including listening and increased awareness of how stories are structured. These books promote more discussion than traditional books because children become more eager to share their version of the story.
Children develop oral story telling skills, as well as creative writing skills through the use of wordless picture books.
Through these books, children become more confident with their reading and storytelling ability.
