A book doesn’t have to have words to be beneficial to your child. Even children who know how to read can benefit from a book made up of only pictures. Reading a picture book without words helps children come up with their own stories, increasing their creativity and helping them develop an understanding of basic story structure.
Picture books without words are often ignored by parents, because it requires them to do more work and exhibit more mental effort during story time. However, the beauty of wordless picture books is that parents don’t have to do much work at all. As long as your child can talk, he can read the story to you.
