Wordless Picture Books
Wordless picture books serve as the initial step towards real reading. Their stories are told entirely through a sequence of illustrations. As children follow the pictures, they verbalize the action in their own words, a process that builds vocabulary and comprehension skills. Children may interpret the stories in their own way, and in the process, learn that stories have a beginning, middle, and an ending.
