Bill Thomson’s Chalk tells the story of three children, a rainy day, and a bag of chalk.
During a stroll through the park, the children happen upon a playground dinosaur ride with a bag of chalk dangling from its jaw.
But this isn’t just any bag of chalk!
When the children begin to draw on the sidewalk, amazing things begin to happen!
Bill Thomson’s brilliantly detailed illustrations must be seen to be believed.
Without a word, every single page pulls you into a tale told with amazingly life-like artwork. And oh, what a tale it is!
It’s hard to imagine that a wordless book could be a “page-turner,” but that’s exactly what this book is.
Full of excitement—and even a touch of fear—this fun book will inspire your own child’s imagination as he wonders what he would draw if he found his own bag of enchanted chalk!
(Warning: Some illustrations may be too intense for some preschool-aged children.)
