Your wordless wednesday's do brighten up my day and the pics make me laugh.Ball gown shopping sounds fun but I sadly have no use for one.Boyf is watching the rugby at his Dad's tomorrow so my mum is coming round for the night where we will watch 'It's a wonderful life' which I have never ever seen!

We’ve found some we love lately, too. The Stray Dog, The Interrupting Chicken (this had all my kids, little and big, laughing out loud), A Sick Day for Amos McGee, and, though its not Caldecott, Children Make Terrible Pets (so cute and funny). I swear they are getting better and better! There are so many talented children’s book authors and illustrators.

I heard it here first. I thought about staying up for the Caldecott announcement, but didn’t. Good morning and hello! We really enjoyed “Charlie Parker Played Be Bop” by Chris Raschka (my husband is a fan of Charlie Parker’s music, so he could sing along with the book); we’ll have to check out “A Ball for Daisy.”

Endless variations to this theme & kids always are engaged by it! I bought a book that has a similar plot line, but with words, of course different author.

I like wordless books because I feel the story is easier to follow because the illustrations are usually more descriptive. That said, I’m always at a loss when I’m trying to read to my kids because my mind goes blank. I never know quite what to say. I’m not the storyteller that my husband is, that’s for sure!

My favorite wordless books are the “frog & the boy” books. I have two boys & what boy doesn’t love the idea of finding & chasing after frogs?
