You might think a book with no pictures seems boring and serious. Except . . . here’s how books work. Everything written on the page has to be said by the person reading it aloud. Even if the words say . . .


Even if the words are a preposterous song about eating ants for breakfast, or just a list of astonishingly goofy sounds like BLAGGITY BLAGGITY and GLIBBITY GLOBBITY.

Cleverly irreverent and irresistibly silly, The Book with No Pictures is one that kids will beg to hear again and again. (And parents will be happy to oblige.)

Honestly, I think that description does it all. This review will be short, there isn’t much to say about a book with no pictures.
This book is funny, it is meant to mock books, it is meant to use words as imagery and it is meant to show kids that adults really read a book exactly how it was written. It does make fun of adults a little bit, it makes us say weird words and make weird sounds. If I remember correctly it even says something about the reader being a monkey. Either way, the kids will be laughing. They will be screaming YES! to all of the questions and they will understand that sometimes, the words ARE what makes a book.

Have something to say?
