I am gradually emerging from the end-of-semester stupor. Soon I will respond to blog comments left over the past few days: I've had to be so responsive to the zillions of pieces of work recently received that it's hard to respond to anything I don't absolutely HAVE TO.
My daughter, Miss Em, loved my blog post yesterday about Napping House.
She confided that she didn't love the book quite as much as I did; maybe I read it too much?
Anyway, in my quest to revive the fortunes of the picture book, I will recommend two other favorites. Both are WORDLESS books. The illustrations can provoke endless discussion, with readers of different ages getting different things from the books.
First is one we have packed away in the attic, awaiting a new generation.
Second is one we checked out of the library time and again.
Frugal Son, for whom this was a particular favorite, was stunned to hear we never owned a copy of this one. Perhaps I should buy one for him.
Do you have a soft spot for wordless books?
