Wordless picture books are wonderful! My daughter (now 14) tells me that she loved these types of books as a child because it allowed her, always the independent one, to tell her own story and to "read" them to us. Wordless books really work one's imagination and thinking skills. Often these are the most beautifully illustrated picture books you will find as well. Wordless books are perfect for one-on-one sharing, and by the way, these books can be quite complex so even older children will enjoy them.
Here are three classics: "Flotsam" by David Wiesner, "Good Dog, Carl" by Alexendra Day, and "The Grey Lady and the Strawberry Snatcher" by Molly Bang.
