Three children discover a magical bag of chalk on a rainy day

What do you think about dinosaurs? Do you like to draw?

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.

As a speech-language pathologist, I LOVE these sorts of books. It allows the child to use the picture visuals to create descriptive language in order to tell their original story. There are lots of WH- and inferencing questions you can ask as well (such as: "how are they feeling?" "why do you think he's drawing a rain cloud?" "what do you think will happen next?"). The pictures are vibrant and each child can make their very own story! Super fun! :)
"A rainy day. Three kids in a park. A dinosaur spring rider. A bag of chalk. The kids begin to draw . . . and then . . . magic."
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.
I am highly recommending this book to EVERYONE! I enjoyed seeing the story played out in images only. The illustrations are superb! This book is a celebration of art and imagination. I dare to say it will tease the inner child out of the most serious adult. I see this wordless story being a catalyst for many animated conversations between children and their caregivers.
A beautifully illustrated, wordless book. I gave this to my 3 year old grandson, and has become one of his favorite as he describes, in his words, what is happening. This has become my new go-to book for preschool birthdays along with a blue gift bag, with vinyl cutout yellow moon and stars on it, and a new pack of colored chalk. A rainy day, or monarch butterfly are never quite the same..;)
I'm a professional tutor who work with students with learning disorders - this is a GREAT book to open the imagination of kids who have trouble putting concepts into words - they start by looking at the pictures, then they tell the story they thought up, then they write it down. I have had a lot of success with this book, and "Fossil" is just as good.
I love this book! My 3.5 year old daughter LOVES it too. We have read it multiple times a day every day since we got it. Every time she looks at it she finds something new on the pages to talk about. I like that the story is open and wordless so it constantly changes and evolves depending on what we see. I bought this based on the recommendation of a Waldorf preschool teacher and am so happy I did. It's a must for any creative kid. Highly recommend!
This wordless book never gets old with my kids (ages 6,5,3, & 1). The imagination in this book is perfect for young children. Illustrations are very good. Sequences are easy for the parent/adult narrator to dictate and for the kids to follow even on their own. Story length not too short and not too long. Bravo. I recommend this book in hard copy and then purchase it again for only 99¢ on your tablet / iPad via Kindle.
