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…
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.
