Journey is a new picture book I heard about late last year. It’s getting lots of buzz right now about possibly being a Caldecott winner. But the highest recommendation to me was when my friend, Ang, told me how much her family loved it and shared the book’s trailer with me.

Here’s the trailer, if you’re curious:
So, naturally, after a recommendation and a trailer like that, we requested the book from the library, and it is really that good. Definitely on my to-buy list of books!
Aaron Becker’s Journey is a wordless picture book about a young girl who is lonely. She uses a marker and her imagination to go on a magical journey, and ends by finding a friend.
The illustrations are beautiful, and the story is very easy to follow. All of my kids have enjoyed this book (2-10 years old), but Brontë has really latched onto it. I think wordless books are very appealing to her right now because she really wants to read, but she can’t read quite yet.
Anyway, here is the story of Journey, as told by Brontë:
If you’d like to try out this great book, I’m sure your library has it. If you want to purchase it, I’m positive your local bookstore has it, but if you are planning a purchase on Amazon, would you please use our link?
It won’t cost you extra and it helps us a little. Thanks!
