Wee Reads: The Book With no Pictures by B.J.Novak

Ever since Finn was born, and even before then, we would read to him. We wanted to show him reading from an early age. Now he loves us to read the same books, over, and over, and over. But it is the sweetest thing, when he likes to pick out a book and climb into our laps. 

What Finn Reads....  
The Book with No Pictures
The Book With no Pictures by B.J.Novak


A book with no pictures?
What could be fun about that?
After all, if a book has no pictures, there's nothing to look at but the words on the page.
Words that might make you say silly sounds... In ridiculous voices...
Hey, what kind of book is this, anyway?
At once disarmingly simple and ingeniously imaginative, The Book With No Pictures inspires laughter every time it is opened, creating a warm and joyous experience to share--and introducing young children to the powerful idea that the written word can be an unending source of mischief and delight.

What Finn Thinks...

Do you like this book?
Yeah! Because it has no pictures and it's funny!

What's your favorite part of the book?
The words you have to say! And they are so funny! I like the hippo named Booboobutt and I like his booboobutt name, and you being a robot monkey too! (He says this in a robot voice) I really like hippos
What do you think of the cover?

No, because I just like it to have pictures. It just has words.

Do you want me to read it again?

Yeah! And to be silly

What Momma Thinks... 
Finn was rolling on the ground, because he was laughing so hard. The first time I pulled this book out, he, of course, had zero interest in the book. But we made him sit down and listen, and I'm pretty sure he made everyone in the house read it to him, twice. This book is just fun. The words it makes you say, and the noises, are hilarious. It's just as much fun, reading it to him, as it is listening to it.
