As a family with four young children our days are filled with books, long stories, short stories, board books, rhyming books, fairy tales and many more. They are all different but like most children’s books most of them have one thing in common: they have pictures for young readers to look at and keep them entertained. You’d think pictures are a must for a children’s book, but then there was this…

The Book With No Pictures

Much talked about children’s book The Book With No Pictures (RRP $19.99) by B.J. Novak is an eyeopener for readers of all ages. It teaches us the power of words, the magic of voices and the unbelievable joy of imagination, it’s fantastic to see what a few words on blank pages can do. Admittedly as the person reading the book out loud you do have to set aside your pride and reservations, you have to give yourself over to the words and make them your own. At first this may feel a little odd but when you see your little spectators respond, giggle, roar and impatiently wait to see what the next page will bring it is all very much worth it.

Watch The Book With No Pictures in action:

After seeing those smiles and hearing the laughter you can’t help but get excited about reading this book to some special little people in your life. The Book With No Pictures is now available at retailers across Australia and online.

  2. I would love to win this so that I can share it with my son. I think he would love the sound effects words used. I would also share it with my mum who is a teacher. She could take it in and share it with her class in 2015.

  9. What a fabulous book.. congrats B. J. Novak on creating something which needs imagination and participation. Not something laboriously outline in every visual frame, which finally culminates in cued and prompted response. We need more of these innovative works, please keep writing B.J.
