Chalk

A wordless picture book about three children who go to a park on a rainy day, find some chalk, and draw pictures that come to life.

Our Review Panel says...

The intensely detailed illustrations guide the reader through the story of three children who discover some enchanted chalk on a rainy day. Whatever they draw magically comes to life and the children are filled with delight at their creations, until one of the boys draws a Tyrannosaurus Rex and the children need to figure out a way to escape the dilemma they now face. This book lends itself well to drama and story-making, particular if you provide a few chalks and a clear playground!
