Inside Outside

Submitted by Ms. Melissa!
Inside Outside is a wordless picture book by Lizi Boyd  In this book, you will journey with a boy, his dog, and occasionally his cat, inside their home and then outside. Each page features a cut out displaying something from the next scene. A bird on a snowman’s arm becomes a piece of art work hung on the refrigerator. This creative method helps children infer and predict facts about the story. Each detailed page tells many stories so that each time you open the book a different adventure awaits you. Wordless picture books are an important early literacy tool. Reading is more than just decoding the words on the page; it’s also about understanding the pictures and comprehending the relationship between the two. Those who struggle with letter recognition often feel defeated when seeing words on a page, but with a wordless picture book they will be drawn into an imaginative world where they can successfully read the story. This book gives the guardian many opportunities to ask questions. This may be a fun way to discover your child’s imagination; you never know how they might answer.
