The Book With No Pictures by B. J. Novak

[Cover]

As the title might suggest, The Book With No Pictures is a picture book that has... no pictures!?

Despite the lack of pictures, the book is still a great choice for story times, because it is very self-aware. It talks about how it has no pictures, and the text is large enough for kids to see from their seats if you're reading to a large group, or to read over your shoulder if you're only reading to one or a few.

It's also an excellent opportunity to play with onomatopoeia, because there are a lot of them in this book.

If you enjoy The Book With No Pictures, you might also like Press Here by Herve Tullet.
