The Book With No Pictures by B.J Novak

This product was recommended by Sally Stevens from FastPeopleSearch

The Book with no pictures is not your normal fairy tale book for 4-year old girls or even a comic book for that matter. I hesitated when buying the book because I was worried about my then 4-year old daughter’s ability to read it. She hardly ever reads through books with no pictures, but she absolutely loved his one. B.J Novak’s approach in this book is comical, almost awe-inspiring. 4-year-olds may start groaning when you tell them that the book has no pictures to see, but they’ll be laughing hysterically within the first few pages of the book. This was the case with my daughter, who absolutely can’t sleep without a reading of the book today. To think of it, this book pretty much got us through the boring pandemic period, Even when all my jokes had become stale, I could still read the book and she’d fall off the chair in laughter.
