What does this mean?
One of a series of wordless picture books about the seasons. Why not read about summer during the summer reading programme.
This wordless picture book ties in with the 2018-2019 Kia Māia te Whai Dare to Explore theme of Haerenga – Voyages. First in a trilogy, it is followed by Quest and Return.
A powerful wordless graphic novel, which shows immigrant and refugee experiences in their voyages to new homes.
Another voyage – this time at the whims of an umbrella and the wind.
One of Mangōpare’s challenges in 2018-19 is to visit a museum. Maybe your visit will be as exciting as the one in this book.
One of Ruru’s reading bingo squares is to read a folktale – you could tick a square and a challenge by reading this wordless book.
Summer and pools go together… what about imaginary voyages with new friends?
Life is a voyage – and things change. You can see it all through this child’s window.
Another chance to read a folktale – this one, based on Japanese storytelling and kamishibai performances.
Will you follow the firefly or the rabbit on your voyage through this book? You can behind at either the front, or the back…
Very nearly wordless (they escaped on the way home). This is a voyage through the imagination.
One of Tuatara’s challenges in 2018-19 is to design your own emoji. You’ll get plenty of ideas in this book.
If you can’t travel in a real boat, what about a paper one?
Well, this is a voyage and a half! I think this counts as wordless.
Bonus book: Ruru’s challenge says, 'read a book with no words or no pictures.' We know there are heaps of books with no pictures around, but I think this is the best of them all.
