Pool by Jihyeon Lee

Release Date - May 5, 2015

Chronicle Books

Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

Pool tells a story without using any words. This entire book is told solely through the illustrations, and they are gorgeous illustrations.

A shy young boy is at the edge of a community pool that's filled with far too many people. He's uncertain this kind of crowd will lead to any form of fun, but what he discovers below the pool's surface is amazing. It's there that he meets a girl who is just as shy as he is. Together, they'll have the adventure of a lifetime.

Parents will find this to be an invaluable tool for getting children ready to tell stories. As there are no words, children and their parents can make up their own dialogue, while also discussing the artwork within. I wish this book had been around when I was teaching my children to read!
