Read full description of the books Chalk:What a unique and interesting book. The art style is so different. A part of me wasn’t a fan, but I was wowed anyway. The pictures are so realistic, vivid, vibrant, colorful, and creative.
The story, told all via the pictures (this is a wordless picture book) of three children who draw things on the sidewalk with chalk, things that come to life, will be fun for many kids. The dinosaur is really scary though in some of the illustrations. I can see some very young or sensitive kids being scared of this book, despite its humor and overall very happy story and obviously happy ending.
I love many wordless picture books. Aside from all their other charms, they’re especially great for kids who do not know how to read words; those kids can usually understand the story and everything going on in a wordless book that relies on pictures to tell the story. Pre-readers will be able to read and perfectly understand the story in this book.
I am having a hard time deciding how to rate this one. I could see giving it a 3, and I could see giving it a 5; I’m going to compromise and I’m giving it 4 stars.
I already had this out from the library, and it turns out I would have read it anyway because it was just selected as one of the wordless picture books the Picture Book Club is reading in January over at the Children's Books group. It’s going to be another fabulous month for that club, which reads 6 picture books each month, every month having a different theme.
