SpringLoaded – A Wordless Book

This is a picture book WITHOUT WORDS, a great adventure in creativity for children to make up their own story to go with the images, and perfect for reluctant readers, illustrating that books are about telling a story, and passing on a message, there is much more to it than just words.

Another great creative commons book from BookDash.

  • Class 3H wonders why they can breathe in space. We like that we can predict a lot in this book, it is filled with imagination, and the cat is very cute. A lot of us think that the girl is dead because they went to space and didn’t have oxygen. Some of us think that the book is a bit boring but some of us also love it. We love that we can decide what we want them to say. Thank you for reading! From 3H.

    • Hi Class 3H so glad you enjoyed this, yes I guess someone in space without O2 would be dead, but that’s the fun of kids books right? They can make-believe things that aren’t really possible. Why don’t you all write some words for the book and send us a new version? We would love to see this. Danielle (site editor)

  • I love your stories about dash

  • This book is so lovely! Very creative and expressive illustrations! Love it!!! Sadly, I am not able to download the PDF version either, even when trying multiple browsers!

  • I love the whole series,having problems printing this book.

    Reply: You have to download the pdf book then you should have no problem printing.

  • When I press the download button it says “this has been disabled”. Very disappointing as it seems like a fantastic resource!

  • The pictures are vivid and attractive. I think this book can easily be modified by the story teller to share with a variety of age levels.

  • This book helps with talking with kids about emotions and how they can help out the world
