On November 12th, 2013, All About Learning Press, Inc. launched a brand-new blog series that highlights wordless picture books. The blog series features in-depth reviews of 10 wordless picture books as well as tips for sharing them with children. A printable library list is also available for easy reference.
“Wordless books are an incredibly versatile genre in children’s literature,” says Marie Rippel, curriculum developer at All About Learning Press, Inc. “Because there are no words to ‘read,’ wordless books can be enjoyed independently by children of all ages—whether they are readers or not.” According to Rippel, wordless books help young children develop important vocabulary and language skills, including creativity, storytelling, and book usage.
The blog series includes reviews of wordless picture books by award-winning authors such as Mitsumasa Anno, Mercer Mayer, Tomie dePaola, and many others. “These wonderful books can benefit your preschooler’s emerging literacy in more ways than you can imagine,” says Rippel.
All About Learning Press, Inc. publishes the All About Reading Pre-reading program, which is designed for preschoolers and kindergarteners. The program teaches five important pre-reading skills: Print Awareness, Phonological Awareness, Letter Knowledge, Listening Comprehension, and Motivation to Read. The program is based on the Orton-Gillingham instructional approach and uses multisensory lessons to teach children the way they learn naturally—through sight, sound, and touch. This comprehensive program comes with lifetime support and a 100 percent money-back guarantee.
