    Wordless Wonder

    Being a wordless book, it relies completely on the illustrations to tell the story. While they were well done and flowed into the next page for transition, I found it to be really short. This did allow me to "re-read" it several times, thus bettering the experience. If not for going over them again, it would have been much worse due to my quick glancing thru.

    Free Fall

    This is a Caldecott Honor Book in 1989. It would be appropriate for children ages 5-12. This is a very entertaining story that captures your imagination. Throughout this story you follow a little boy through his dreams to find out where he will end up. I really liked this story. I think that it would keep a child¿s attention throughout the entire story. This was the first book that David Wiesner wrote. His book Tuesday was a Caldecott Award winner in 1992. He was born and raised in New Jersey and graduated from Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Illustration. He now lives in Brooklyn with his wife Kim, where he devotes full time to illustration and she pursues

    Free Fall

    Free Fall is a Caldecott Honor Book. Set Back and let your imagination run free. Follow the little boy through his dreams to find out where he will end up. As you flip through the pages of this book you will find something very interesting. This book would be good for grades k-12. I really like this book. You could use it to create your own story. It would be great to use as a story starter. This is a realistic book. This book is by David Wiesner. Wiesner was born and raised in Bridgewater, New Jersey. Him and his wife live in Brooklyn where she is pursuing her career as a surgeon. Wiesner, David. Free Fall. New York: Lothrop, Lee & Shephard Books, 1988.
