I am so excited since starting the Preschool Building Stories where I get to talk to librarians about their favorite titles - including my favorite books - the wordless picture books!  This is one of the more impressive books I have come across.  As I always tell the people who come to the workshops - wordless picture books are so fantastic and work so well with kids who have a great imagination - but they are even better for children with a more concrete way of thinking - with a harder time using their imaginations.  They also teach children that books are more about the fantastic stories inside and not just about learning to read.
