Did you know there is research that shows that wordless picture books help readers "understand the elements of story structure, develop visual literacy, think and write creatively, and cultivate language and narrative abilities"?

There are lots of great wordless picture books out there. My friend Lynn did a post about some of them last month. Check it out here.
One of my favorite books isn't technically wordless per se, but it has very limited words and the pictures are so much fun! It can create so much great discussion! The book is Good Night Gorilla and it's a favorite among all the kids I work with. It'll probably come up again in this series when we talk about inferencing.
