What is “wordless counting” ?
Wordless picture books contain only pictures and little or no text. They depend entirely on carefully sequenced illustrations to present the story. The illustrations must be highly narrative.
Although wordless picture books are generally aimed at preschoolers (aged 4 to 6), some of them are also intended for older children because they contain complex plot structures, subtle imagery, and sophisticated tone.
Since wordless picture books require a response from the “reader”, they play an important role in the development of positive reading habits and attitudes among children.
