Book Review: "Chalk"

This is the most awesome wordless picture book I think I've ever seen.  Three kids go to the park on a rainy day and find a bag of chalk hanging from one of the playground toys.  They begin to draw and discover that whatever they draw comes to life.  It's all fun and games until the boy draws something a little scary and they have to figure out how to make it go away.  The illustrations are just wonderful, using light and shadow, with lots of interesting angles.  The expressions on the kids' faces plainly tell you what they are thinking and feeling.  This is a great book to find at your library to share with your kids.  All of mine loved it. 

I received nothing for this review.  However, if you click on the link and make a purchase at Amazon, I will receive a small commission.
