Shirley Brice Heath writes, "Adults read for meaning while children look for meaning." (Handbook of Research on Children's and Young Adult Literature, p. 40)  Nowhere is this more evident than in picturebooks where the story is told entirely in pictures.  Kelly Roll has created a list of Wordless picturebooks that can be found in Cubberley Library's collection.
