The Book With No Pictures (B.J. Novak)

Our Assistant Principal introduced my class to this book. She did an excellent job reading it to them and the kids thought it was a blast. After they found out that she had given it to me as a Christmas present, they couldn't wait to read it again. There is lots of silliness. Lots of funny words. And lots of laugh out loud moments. Today when we had Reading Buddies they were adamant we had to read it to the grade ones. We all had some good laughs!

This was also a top picks book by Nerdy Book Club this year.

Goodreads Summary:

A book with no pictures?

What could be fun about that?

After all, if a book has no pictures, there's nothing to look at but the words on the page.

Words that might make you say silly sounds... In ridiculous voices...

Hey, what kind of book is this, anyway?

At once disarmingly simple and ingeniously imaginative, The Book With No Pictures inspires laughter every time it is opened, creating a warm and joyous experience to share--and introducing young children to the powerful idea that the written word can be an unending source of mischief and delight.
