We’ve been enjoying these superb, wordless, picture books by Kate Prendergast today: Dog on a Digger and Dog on a Train (Old Barn Books)
What did we like about them?
- Wordless– Books without words, like these by Kate Prendergast, enable children, regardless of reading ability, to access and love literature. They help develop speech, language and communication skills- as children describe and explain what they see in the pictures.
- Detail of the Illustrations– The detail of Kate Prendergast’s illustrations is phenomenal. There is so much to see and talk about. Making the books very engaging and a great way to get children chatting!
- Use of Colour– Colour is used in the illustrations to cleverly highlight the key points to the plot. Enabling children to focus their attention more easily.
- Loyalty and Friendship- Both stories have a wonderful moral of friendship and loyalty. Such important values to promote to children.
