(Sports humor) Two gophers feel the joy—and trials—of golfing (thanks to other critters). Your child can find and name animals as they describe the action on the golf green.

Kids love to make up their own stories to go with the pictures—cementing extant vocabulary and prompting them to learn new words. A colorful picture book for beginning readers (kids ages 2 – 6/preschool – first grade, Emergent Reader/Fountas & Pinnell: A, DRA: 1).

Get number 3 in the Stories Without Words series (stand alone; previous titles not needed) by award-winning author and media professor Karl Beckstrand (GROW: How We Get Food from Our Garden —click Karl Beckstrand above for all 60 multicultural books); Illustrated by Jordan C.

4.0 out of 5 stars brain-tickling for little kids!
By PattyMacDotComma on February 26, 2021
“A wordless picture book.”

This is a great idea for stimulating children’s imaginations. I imagine I’d give it to kids to go through on their own and then maybe start from the beginning and look at it with them. I’ll include a handful of illustrations in the order they appear in the book, so you can get an idea of the flow.

. . .

We see a bird intercept a ball and place it in a nest full of eggs.

We see the gophers up in the tree, hitting the ball from the nest (with eggs at risk). I’ve never seen a gopher up a tree that I know of, but that alone could spark a conversation.

Later, a ball seems to land in a tree where there is a squirrel (I *think* it is a squirrel). A gopher lines up on an acorn instead of a ball, as the two of them kill themselves with laughter.

The book does show where their ball went.

The squirrel has its cheeks full of nuts and a golf ball.

It also shows their acorn shot landing in a nearby pond.

There is a lot of laughter and humour in this, and I think kids would have fun making up a story and adding dialogue no matter what language they speak or are learning as a second language. This sort of picture book can help them develop vocabulary. Personally, I'd prefer another style of illustration, but that's just me.
