Without Words: 20 Wordless Picture Books Published Recently

from The Changing Countryside.

Two of my favorite wordless book are Dong Sheen and Jae-Soo Liu's (2002) Yellow Umbrella and Jorg Muller's (2006) The Changing Countryside.  In this post I want to highlight a recent (and one to be published) wordless picture books. Macguire's The Wild Swans, an accordion book that opens to more than 60 feet, may be my new favorite.

Wordless picture books offer readers opportunities to build comprehension, especially with regard to inferring, character development, and theme.
