    AMAZING. This wordless book follows a boy as he goes on an adventure to MOMA in New York and gets to really *see* some famous pieces for the first time. And then, of course, have more adventures. I love the idea about making art more accessible for kids, and a book like this is a grea...

    Read for Librarian Book Group I enjoyed the setup: a boy skateboards over a bridge (that I'm too lazy to look up to see which New York City bridge it was) to go to the Guggenheim. Once there, he has adventures with paintings. Because the people in the paintings come to life and hang...

    This book reminded me a bit of The Incredible Painting of Felix Clousseau by Jon Agee, because in both books, the paintings come to life, and figures in the paintings come out of the paintings. Imagine is a wordless book in which a young boy visits the Museum of Modern Art, and as he...

    This is a wordless picture book about a boy who decides to go to an art museum. As he becomes engrossed in the paintings, the artwork comes to life! I've always loved wordless books. There's a beautiful art to telling a story only through pictures. While I adore the story of a youn...

    "Imagine" going to an art museum and having adventures with those in the paintings, dancing with ballerinas, entering a forest with the animals there, jumping onto a stallion with a herd of wild horses. Those are simply my visions, but Raul Colon has shown other examples as a boy leave...

    There are no words, just illustrations, to formulate your own narrative about this story. I came up with my own reading of it to my homeschooler and it was a pleasant exercise. Good if you'd like your child to interpret pictures and story on their own. ...

    I really used to stay aware from wordless picture books but this one has really helped change my mind. The art in this is dreamlike and really opens the story up for interpretation. I read this with my 11 year old son and we had a great conversation about the main character and his act...
