The author, Bill Thomson, has written a brilliant book. This is a book for children with imaginations, and I have not seen many who are not imaginative. We find ourselves in a park on a rainy day, with children who find some chalk. Soon they are drawing pictures with the chalk. The sun, butterflies, a dinosaur, and soon they all come to life. The sun shines, the butterflies fly, and well, the dinosaur is there. When you read this book, you will discover what occurs next.
Adults will enjoy this book along with the children. The children will be able to make the story up as they go along and put words into the childrens' mouths. The illustrations by Bill Thomson are bright, vivid and colorful. They depict the story as it is seen. This is quite an innovative book, and a fullmclassroom would really enjoy this book as much as one child.

It is a story of chalk drawings coming to life. I’m not sure younger elementary children will fully understand the story Bill Thomson tells in this wordless book. Older children, however, would be able to write quite an involved story based on the illustrations in Chalk.
I have a copy of Chalk in my K-12 Christian School library. This is my honest review.
Wow! My grandson and I have loved the books of David Wiesner - and have most of them. I've just discovered Bill Thomson and Chalk. Gorgeous art. Fascinating story. No words, but who needs words when the pictures tell it all (a picture is worth a 1,000 words, after all!). I was going to give this to my grandson for Christmas, but I don't think I can wait. He's going to get an early Christmas present today. I'm only sorry I've already purchased books for all the kids on my Christmas list this year. I sooo want to get this for someone! :-)
And, Bill Thomson . . . . he even thanked the company who made the playground ride this story is written around.
