Last year I published a children's book with no pictures. Sometimes kids ask if I would ever write one without words. Well, I'm not an artist; but these are my favorite children's books with only pictures. Add yours if you know one you love.

  13. Journey by Aaron Becker

    A beautiful homage to children's imaginations. Incidentally I bought this along with @bjnovak's book at my kid's book fair. Didn't get any run of the mill books with both words and pictures.

  14. Unspoken by Henry Cole
    269e5b17 1074 4474 b7b0 046da7a64af0
    A story from the Underground Railroad. Really beautiful illustrations tell the wordless story of a young girl who helps a passenger of the Underground Railroad. A perfect introduction of this historical time for young children.
