Friday Favorites

I’ve decided to start a new feature called Friday Favorites.  Friday Favorites can be anything that I’m loving this week: books, food, movies, anything goes!

I spent the better part of this week reading mentor texts and working on polishing a couple of manuscripts.  While reading, I came across B.J. Novak’s The Book With No Pictures.BookWithNoPictures_3D-300x423.png

What?  How can you have a picture book with no pictures you may be asking yourself.  Well, Mr. Novak pulls it off!

This 48 page picture-less picture book will be a favorite of kids.  It forces the reader to say things like “I am a monkey who taught myself to read.”  This totally off-the-wall-, silly books shows kids that you don’t need pictures and  with a focus on effective words, magic can happen.  Or just embarrassing your teacher or parent.

If you haven’t seen this book, find it and read it to a kid.  You will make their day and you can’t help feeling a little like a kid yourself!

(There’s a great video of BJ reading the book to a group of kids.  Take a look!)

What’s on your favorites list this week?
