Do You Know This Book?

The other day I came across this book.  It is amazing!  This is a wordless book that I can NOT wait to use in my writer's workshop. 

I can also use this when I launch reader's workshop.  In kindergarten we talk about reading the pictures... Perfect!


  1. Another one you can use to read the pictures is Mine! by Kevin Luthardt. He's a muralist and only puts the word Mine! in the book once or twice. The rest is perfect for Kindies to "write" the story as they read it. Too fun.
    He also has one called Hats! that's similar.

    I can't wait to read this one!

    The Corner On Character

  2. Oh... Thanks Barbara! I will have to check it out!

  3. Good Dog Carl by Alexandra Day is awesome for reading pictures. I used it with our caption lessons also.

  4. Love wordless books...will definitely add that one to the collection. So jealous you are 2 more days left, then work day!

  5. I used this book last fall with my JK class when I first launched writer's workshop. At the beginning of the year we really focus on telling a story with a picture and wordless picture books are the best for these young authors to understand that they can "write a story" with knowing how to write actual words. They loved it and it really helped them get the idea of storytelling. 8 more school days for us yet.....Sue

  6. At my former school, we have a Read-a-Thon each fall to spark kids interest in reading for the year. One of the special days was "Guest Reader Day". A favorite mom who LOVES books brought this one in. The kids loved it! She continued to come in and "read" it for years even after I no longer had any of her children. The Snowman by Raymond Briggs is also a great example. A little long for kindergarten but great book.


  7. I love this book! Some more books to inspire your Kinders that are my favorites are Chalk by Bill Thomson and Zoom by Istvan Banyai. They are for both reading, writing and critical thinking!
