Awesomely realistic illustrations is an understatement. Love that we can change up this wordless story with different adjectives and side-scenarios each time. Every read is fantastic - every time. We stumbled upon this book because my girls are dino lovers - but all will appreciate this book. The characters are 2 girls and 1 boy, and includes a butterfly scene. My new go-to gift book for a wide age-range of children, girls and boys alike!

This is a beautiful book. The story has no words. You make up a story to match the illustrations. It will give young children an opportunity to let their imagination soar. It invites creative thinking. This is the first time I have seen a book that has no words to the story. The illustrations are beautiful. I got the book at a really good price in a Lightning Deal. It's well worth the money.

Many days I am awoken by the sharp corner of some terribly wordy book being shoved into my eyebrow and the sweet voice of my 2 year old forcefully saying, "read it". Then I usually reply, "no, I am still sleepy..." and then screaming commences until I open my eyes the least amount possible and attempt to read, but it's usually just mumbles and falling back asleep which is met with more screaming. And then I hear my 4 year old doing something shady in the kitchen and then I actually wake up.
Enter Chalk.
This book my 4 year old delights in "reading" to his little sister. This book has given him the confidence to tell his stories. This book gives him a map of story telling beyond "beginning, middle, and end". Each page, every day, he tells his sister something new; how bright the colors are, how excited the girl is, how naughty the boy is but how smart too. This morning I awoke to my sweet 2 year old saying "like your coat, Freddie" over and over, because her big brother, Freddie, also has a yellow rain coat.
And the times that I do have to "read it", I don't mind. I don't have to get the words right, I can go back to dreaming as long as I am still talking.
We got this one from the library but it will be a part of our permanent collection soon. It is a must read!

I am a teacher and the kids love this book. They like to use the clue to predict what will happen next. Great for inferring. Also great for having the kids tell the story of the book by what they see in the pictures.

My son (4yr) usually loves a story telling experience. But this has been one of his new favorites, because he can change the story every time he reads it. With no words to guide him only pictures, he makes up his own stories.

My three year old loves telling this story. The animation is wonderfully creative for everyone. Great for all ages. Fun.

The wordless picture book Chalk is pure imagination.

The story of a group of kids finding some magic chalk on a rainy day is told in Bill Thomson's incredibly detailed artwork. The art was created using traditional methods; no computers involved. Thomson painstakingly planned and executed each illustration by hand, using a good ol' paint brush and colored pencils.

In addition to the outstanding artwork, Chalk is also a cleverly told story. The magic chalk comes to life when the children draw with it. This is all fun and games until someone draws a dinosaur!

I would recommend this book to anyone from ages 0-100. It explores the possibility that our imaginations are not always stuck in our head but can very likely come to life.

My 3 year old little boy loved Chalk “as big as his whole body“ and gave it 20 out of 5 stars for having a T-rex and letting the ‘reader‘ choose their own words to the story.

This book is a hit around here. I caught my oldest son - my oldest! -- engrossed in it, and then telling the story. Excellent illustrations of drawings coming to life. And then? Oh no! Someone draws a dangerous beast, and only quick thinking can fix the problem.

Be careful what you wish for!

I am always impressed when someone can tell a great story with a bunch of pictures. And what pictures! The drawings are detailed and colorful and a joy to look at! Great kids book. You could have the kids tell you the story of what they're looking at. Great way to tweak their imaginations!
