Wordless picture books

When sharing a picture book parents and children are much more likely to engage in complex discussions about thoughts and feelings when there are no, or few, words in the book, compared to when there is a lot of text. Wordless picture books are consequently core to our book-sharing courses.

To address the shortage of high-quality and affordable wordless picture books in South Africa, we produce our own books. We make them available to partners are cheaply as possible.

With support from the Mila Charitable Trust, we ran an illustrator incubator in 2018, in which four emerging South African illustrators were paired with an experienced mentor to produce a series of wordless picture books with support from our board.
