The Wordless Vocabulary Book Series
Themed books with black and white illustrations for introducing vocabulary based on a theme. Perfect for children or adults. Introduce the new vocabulary page by page, then close the book and use the cover to review.
Why Black and White?
By using black and white imagery in our books, we help the learners and teachers focus on the content at hand. Complex, colorful imagery can be distracting to learners just starting a language. Simple, black and white line images on the other hand help the learner’s focus on the simple words they are learning in the new language. Eliminating color may also allow the learner to subconsciously fill in colors for an object, helping them to easily identify with the image.

We learn our mother tongue from observation. There is no translation, our minds naturally sort through the sounds we hear and eventually assign meaning. This process shapes our minds, turning us into native speakers.
