I meant to post this yesterday, but ran out the door and never came back!
I was trying to come up with something to say yesterday and then started thinking about what books I liked to look at -alone-when I was a kid.
A few came to mind.
MUD TIME AND MORE - 1979. (it must have been my parent's book first! My sister and I liked to write our names in books that weren't ours...it actually became a competition!)
I loved looking at these simple drawings and "reading" the story. I think this is fitting in light of the Caldecott winner.
Then there was this book-- THE LITTLES AND THEIR FRIENDS - 1981 (has my name on it and a "RIF" stamp)
I went hunting for the littles! I never found any, sadly.
That gets me to thinking. Could I make a wordless book? What would it be about? Does my style even lend itself to that sort of thing? What if I did nonfiction that way? That would be weird, right?
What are your favorite wordless books? There aren't that many but they're out there!
